Public service announcement

The following is intended as a public service announcement only. I am not looking for comments, condolances or wisecracks. However, large cash gifts are always appropriate. This is intended primarily for my remote friends – that is, those folks with whom I am not in frequent enough contact, or who don’t live close enough, that they would already know this. In other words, this is intended to prevent awkward moments at parties, conferences, and on IRC.

As of last Friday, according to the court of the state of Kentucky, I am no longer married.

Further discussion of related issues will have to wait for another time, since it’s a little hard to be objective. Or, to quote Stevie Nicks (which, of course, I try to do as often as possible) “It’s hard to be civil, and it’s real hard to be nice.”
