This blog is called "Past Midnight" since that's when most of the posts will be written. You could also take this phrase as a comment on the state of the world these days. I've been reluctant to start a blog but (like many people) I have realized that it's a good way to post informal comments and speculations on various topics that don't fit well into anything I'm working on at the moment. My wife is delighted that I'm doing this since it means that I will rant at her less often.
I will post at irregular intervals, as time and inspiration permit. Sorry, but I'm not going to maintain a comment thread. If you want to respond to something I've said here, feel free to get in touch by email, to kent.peacock<at>uleth.ca.
