When I started blogging, hardly anyone had ever heard the word “blog” now they’re about as ubiquitous as zip codes. I initially hoped this would be a space in which I could write a bit, at my leisure, on topics which interested me and that’s what I did, at first. But it’s become a beast that demands to be fed, on a daily if not hourly basis, or else people complain that I’m not doing my job properly…and I’ve grown weary of it. There are plenty of bloggers who seem to have endless energy for the task; I’ve got a lot of them listed on the links page. But it’s time for me to rethink this thing. I’ll keep it open until election day, but after that, I believe this page will be going dark for awhile.
