UPDATE: Here is a link to Lindsay’s apology.
Sorry for the terseness of this. I’m writing this on my phone, the guest Internet at the dorm where I’m staying for the SSA conference for some reason shuts off between midnight and 7 AM. But I wanted to get something up about this now.
Yes, I’ve seen Ron Lindsay’s apology. (Can’t link to it – again, doing this from my phone – but I’m sure it’s being linked to extensively elsewhere.) I want and need to think about this for at least a few hours before I give a full response, plus I’m at this conference and Sunday is a travel day and I have a deadline on Monday, so I can’t give this the full attention it deserves right this second. So for right now, provisionally, I will just say this: Reservedly happy, and cautiously optimistic. More as soon as possible, probably by Monday afternoon Pacific time.
