Update: Okay, back in business.
Oof, there is no joy at e.politics today — I just attempted to upgrade an innocent plugin, and BOOM! The site disappears. I’ve tracked down enough of the problem to restore the interior pages, but while I’m diagnosing why the site front page doesn’t want to show up, we’re gonna run with one of those nice default WordPress themes for a bit. So things will look a little different for a few minutes (at least) — exciting times.
