01/04/2006: Ah... thank heavens they're back....
For a few days, it looked like someone over at The Institute for Southern Studies hadn't paid the Internet bill. Seriously. Whenever you'd point your browser to that site (or to their excellent blog, Facing South, current bloghome of The Blogger Formerly Known As South Knox Bubba) you'd get a web page that showed that the domain name was up for grabs (i.e., that the domain name registration had expired).
Well, I'm glad they paid the bill. A week without Friday Bird Blogging is like a day without sunshine.
