Thomas Howard: How are we doing? Feel free to let us know

By THOMAS HOWARD,

This past week I’ve been preparing to go on vacation, my first in 5 years. Well, that’s not exactly true. I took a “vacation” last year, but due to staffing issues at the office, it was more of me working from home for a few days. This, I hope, will be an actual vacation, unplugging for a bit and letting the world pass me by.
