You may notice that some of our regular features, like the PopCult Bookshelf, have been missing in action for the last couple of weeks. Let me step out from behind the editorial “we” and be frank for a moment. I am dealing with a serious illness in the family, and it has eaten into my blogging time. Things are not dire yet, but they are not going well, and while I have a great review of a wonderful book in my head, I do not have the energy to turn it into the written word.

It’s a very stressful time, and I hope you understand if PopCult is a little light on content for the next couple of weeks. I will try to come back with a PopCulteer Friday, and I tentatively plan to produce Radio Free Charleston 188 this weekend, but those plans may have to take a backseat to family.

Later, Rudy
