So the History of Rome went to the ER on Friday complaining of abdominal pain and we wound up having our appendix removed about six hours later*. I'm doing fine and am resting comfortably, but unfortunately that means this week's episode has been cancelled. Shouldn't have any trouble getting back to work next week though, so I'll see you then.
C'est la vie,
*No word on whether my footnotes were also removed, but thanks for your concern Scott...
