Kim's back. Just damn! Several years ago, he went silent for reasons purely of his own, but we kept track of him via mutual internet contacts. Several months ago I learned that his beloved Connie had taken ill, and recently learned that she had passed.
But, via Instapundit, I learned that he's come back to the intertubes. Kim was one of the first bloggers I ever read. Back in the days when the internet was just catching speed, and I had a dial-ip modem, Kim duToit was one of my daily reads.
So, first, my condolences for your loss, Kim, and second, welcome back.
He calls this edition of his blog Splendid Isolation. It should show up on the blogroll soon.
