Contrary to appearances, I’m still here, and still writing. Over the next few days, expect to see accumulated bits and pieces that I’ve been working on during my travels to Southern Africa and beyond. But don’t expect any of them to appear on the Huffington Post. My union, the National Writers Union, has distributed a call to support the Huffington Post Union of Bloggers, who join my blogroll today. I’ve never crossed a picket line – virtual or physical – and I’m not about to start now.
