I seem to have misspoken.
Your response to my hasty and ill-conceived resignation – filled as it has been with expressions of appreciation, affection and some degree of addiction - has swayed me nearly as much as my spouse's insistence that I stop bombarding her with puns, sage observations and wry insights else she would make up the bed in the Other Room.
So here's the deal. I'll resume posting SAR on most weekdays, with content no longer than I easily can slip into the day. Photographic Parting Shots and Pornographs will be occasional treats.
But I will not impose requirements on myself regarding the seriousness or relative importance of the items selected for comment. Let's face it, no one wants to hear about global warming – we're toast and there's really nothing more to say. Or the death of democracy – the corpse is cold and the mourning done. That the rich have already inherited the earth is incontestable and only an organized attempt at their overthrow would be worth comment. And so on.
Pretty much, I'm freeing myself from the rules I imposed on myself. You are all invited along for the ride.
And before you get all comfortable, I'm going on vacation, so between now and the end of the month, posting will be... occasional.
What really got this reconsideration started was this item:
Give 'em A Hand: Research suggests that ejaculation may lower the risk of prostate cancer.
So here's the latest edition:
Abolition, women's suffrage, trust busting, civil rights and gay marriage were once impossible, Ms. Clinton.
Panama Root Canal: Where are all the Americans? Why go to Panama if we’ve got Delaware, Nevada, and Wyoming?
Assigned Reading: The Showdown At the Philadelphia Corral.
Yes, But: The Lady in Waiting (Impatiently) says that Bernie Sanders is a 'single issue' candidate. True, but that single issue that he cares so much about is us.
Humanity: Children who survived the disastrous earthquake in Nepal are being “sold as slaves” to British families.
Shopping List: Gotta go to the bookstore today and get my new Tennessee State Bible; it's the law.
