Drip... Drip... Drip

Stepping away for a while to work on something a little more involved, though perhaps of interest to even fewer people than stop by here for the snarky commentary. It's not a hiatus, but a refocusing of, well, my focus. I'm not pleased with my recent efforts and how blogging has affected my already limited style, I don't bother to read Richard Cohen any longer, and I have come to dread the mental delousing that is necessary after reading a few pages of popular political commentary of late. I'm not changing anyone's mind and I'm fairly certain no one is changing mine. FWIW, I am largely a single issue voter and that issue is freedom. There is no question in my mind that George W. Bush is more likely to leave me freer four years hence than John Kerry. You may disagree, but then, of course, you are, thankfully, free to do so.

In the meantime, I will keep reading and commenting, but expect posting to be sparse and somewhat erratic for an as yet indeterminate period of time. Not sure how long my labor of love will take, so just in case, remember that November 2 is my birthday. I've already made my wish.

P.S. I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks.

November? November! *sigh*

Write when you feel like it. I'll read it and enjoy. Until you feel like writing again, take care of yourself and live well.

Chuck, you can go ahead and say it... you're stepping away to prepare for your upcoming fantasy football season. Are you ready for some football?!

It's your blog and you can cry when you want to,
write when you want to,
try if you want to ...

I've got the summertime blahs too, as well as a stomachful of rabid Bush haters who don't like facts to get in the way of their "emoting". I think things will get interesting after Labor Day. You can always write about your childhood memories of fishing for carp on the banks of the mighty Fox river.

I will still look forward to your snarky commentary on others' comment sections. You and Treacher kill me.
