Bob Himber wrote “Ken I’ve concluded that you need to write a daily column,
” the jewish, gun toting, liberal buddist lawyers blog”. Well I am unlikely to write everyday, but possible I could write from time to time. Facebook has stimulated creative posting of news articles and bon mots. So now I declare partial independence from Facebook and create my new literary bankrupt venue. What if I write this and nobody shows up to read it. If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it will it sound like one hand clapping? As luck would have it, Romney was given his party’s nomination for the November election. It would be too easy to get absorbed in taking shots at such an easy target. But just as shooting at a paper target 3 yds away hardly seems sporting, so does it seem equally unsatisfying to pile on the republican candidates. Equally unsatisfying would be to pretend I enjoy the chicken-shit posturings of the democrats. So finding myself unmoved and unimpressed by the political landscape I am going to focus my attention on social commentary in the realm of crime, law, entertainment and simple weirdness.
So, if you found your way here, by any means and despite the prudence of avoidance, I will try to find articles which educate and amuse. The day/night wanes and I am fatigued. I spent the day partly researching “How to start a blog”. So I have further time or interest in expending more effort.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
