Just wanted to clarify something quickly. The Observer is requiring every employee to take a week of unpaid leave in this fiscal quarter. By coincidence, this is my week. I can't undo that, so I couldn't chase the Okafor trade. I'm using this week productively to take care of two aging parents. But I'd love to be writing about this interesting situation that seems mostly about payroll management. See you when I'm off furlough.
— A bit of an explanation as to why the Observer hasn't been covering this story any closer. Pretty sad, really.
