Reader’s Question: how to handle a dismissal
A reader wrote in with the following question:

resume, but I can’t think of a way to minimize the impact when asked why I

Just a short blurp here to let you know I’ve returned. Though you may not have even noticed the posting vacuum since you, as was I, may have been glued to events in New Orleans.

With that said, the next post will return to its more typical venue.
