We're back after a week's absence. The aggregating websites and blogs that used to be included here have been moved to a cross-column spot just below this blog's header and page tabs. So they should always be available viewed on a PC, but might not be if viewed on a mobile device. (The latter's simplified view might also be excluding our sidebar content.) What remains are more literally policy-related reviews.
