The terrible news is the story Andrew links to but the good is that, against my suspicions and fears, we haven't lost him. For a while what with the HIV stuff I was certain we had but it seems he is still prepared to take the appropriate stance on this and given his high readership, the fact that he has been an intactavist for decades {I recall reading a post about him by a former colleague of his who mentioned he had been convinced not to circumcise either of his two boys when they worked together on another blog} and was the man who, with a few posts on the topic on his blog a few years back, managed to reveal the enormity of the horror to not only myself but many others I reckon that that at least is something to be thankful for.
