See, what had happened was….

At some point in March, The Frontline went down, and I didn’t even know it. I was working 14-hour days at my new job out at the Memphis airport, and I wasn’t even aware that my blog domain had expired. Worse, when I did become aware of it, it was too late to renew the domain. So I ended up having to repurchase the domain from someone who acquired it after it went back to the registry, and then wait for the transfer to complete. Finally, as of today, The Frontline is back up and running. I apologize for the delay, and hope you will check back often for running coverage of the culture, food, music and lifestyle of the post-modern South.
