Nothing Here Folks, Move Along

Well, hello all. Nothing really to post here, but there's been a lot of dead air on this blog lately so I thought I should update you on that. A large part of it is the old excuse that there are so many other good and excellent blogs out there that I find that by the time I have a chance to post items, in the late afternoon or evening, most of what I have to say has already been said already and better by others. Another thing is my "news" judgement, which has been off the last few months. That whole Schiavo thing? I thought it was a personal matter between an all but dead woman and her husband. I tried to avoid posting on that. Ditto the "runaway bride" story, though she was arguably not "all but dead." Celebrity trials are not my cup of tea. Although alternately annoyed amused by outraged persecuted Christians, I think they're not worth getting worked up enough about for me to write about, and besides, those nutjobs are so ably covered at World 'O Crap.

I could post on what's going on in my life, but frankly it's mostly not all that interesting and those few areas that might be interesting, such as my relationships with women, are really too convoluted for me to articulate clearly. If I understood these things well enough to write about them, my thinking goes, I would handle them better in the first place and then they wouldn't be interesting enough to write about. It's a catch, you see. I'm not finding my way out of that dilemma, though lord knows I want to.

Anyway, that's that. I've filled up some space here and probably discouraged anyone who wandered over to see what's going on from wandering back again. I am hopeful that I will soon shake this malaise and return with trenchant insights and awe inspiring prose.
