retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Today marks the end of my summer adjunctivity at Portland State University's Center for Retail Leadership, where Tom Gillpatrick has been kind enough to let me share the teaching duties with him this summer, as he has in three previous summers. I've said it before and I'll say it again - these weeks in Portland are consistently among the happiest of my professional life, and I love the hours I've spent in the classroom.

Tomorrow I start the drive back to Connecticut. Hence, the reason for this note...

I'm not exactly sure how long the drive will take, but I'm going to put MNB on hiatus for a few days until I get back home. I'll post pictures from time to time on Facebook if you want to track our progress, and I'll keep an eye on the news and will file reports and commentary if events warrant it. But I think we'll get back faster and safer if I focus on the traveling and not the writing ... and, as I say, I'll let you know when I'm back by posting MNB.

Thanks for your patience ... and I'll see you soon.

Fins Up!
