Islanders are back

Journalists Mark Frauenfelder and Carla Sinclair and their two young daughters have returned to Los Angeles from Rarotonga in the South Pacific. Mark posts at bOINGbOING, which he co-founded:

We'd planned on being there for a year, but our kids ended up catching pneumonia, lice, and other creepy afflications and the health care there was really bad so we evacuated. I'll have an article at the LA Weekly about it in a few weeks.

Belated welcome back home.
