I need to take a few days off because I'm having some minor surgery tomorrow. (I'd like to say that they're going to make me taller, thinner and more handsome, but alas, it is nothing that exciting or ambitious.) But that means I won't be able to do MNB tomorrow, Friday 1/19, Monday, 1/22, and Tuesday, 1/23.
If all goes as expected, I should be back on Wednesday, January 24.
Unlike Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, I think it is important to be reasonably transparent about this stuff, even though I am not in the presidential line of succession, nor am I in the nuclear chain of command. (Though I'd like to be.)
If anything changes about my schedule, I'll let you know.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
