Haven’t been blogging because there’s nothing much to say. The “West” is doomed. Fragments of it should survive, and I certainly hope to end up in one of those fragments. But the hope I had after the rise of the Tea Parties has been entirely extinguished.
Anyway, am leaving tomorrow for an outage job at Wolf Creek Nuclear Generating Station. Hopefully about nine weeks. We (me, brother, sister-in-law) are sharing a rental trailer which probably won’t have wi-fi. I don’t know the plant policy on accessing the internet from work, and we’ll probably be too busy to do it much anyway. We’ll be working 4 12-hour days, then one day off.
So, in addition to not having the will to blog much, I may not have the way for a while. Any of you die-hards are welcome to blog here to your heart’s content. If you don’t currently have the means, leave a comment and hopefully I’ll see it shortly.
I do feel as if I’ve let you all down. At the height of my blogging, I felt a closer kinship to many commenters than I ever did to most people I know. But it seems clear to me that sharing my recent thoughts would not be a blessing to anyone.
Gotta go. Hopefully most of my analyses are wrong, but…honestly, I can’t remember when that’s ever been true. God bless you all.
And here’s a pic I just saw a few minutes ago. It’s pretty darn accurate.
