If things seem a little slow around here.... Not to worry. The Apartment Therapist has gone on a corporate retreat. But he had a few special posts stored up, and then there are some classics to revisit, and, goodness knows, there's a lot of material to work with during this convention. Closed streets getting you down? Worried about our national direction? Upset by all the upset? (Or thrilled by it?) Regardless, don't forget to make your bed.
