Both literally and figuratively. I can't seem to shake this cold. It seems that for every year I age, my colds tend to last another day or two and increase in severity. It's not like I don't take care of myself.
As for the figuratively part, and besides being busy the last, well, couple years, I've been anything but motivated to keep this blog going. I've gone from a couple of hits a day, to thousands a day, and well, now am lucky to get more than a hundred visitors a day. Not complaining, just pointing out that my stats reflect my effort.
I think I'm calling it quits for this blog. Not cold turkey, but this blog is pretty much done. I've got another idea in the works, and maybe will return full-time next year under a new blog with a new name. New everything. Maybe.
And it's not very often I agree with liberals like Greenwald, but he has a point. And in a way I'm glad (though he's not). Obama looks to be centering himself. Including the Democrats in Congress. I mean, imagine if the next presidency was going to act how the congressional Democrats did for the last 8 years? They were insane with flaming rage only to be fanned by their base. God forbid.
And that doesn't give the rightosphere much opportunity. I'm sure there will be, but for right now, the blogosphere is pretty quiet, and consequently boring. I've never been one to care much about local or regional politics, obscurities, or any other niche outside issues of national significance, so I won't be doing this again, for a while at least.
Thanks for reading.
