I have been profoundly disappointed in my lack of opportunity to write here lately (combined with a drastic scaling back in my ability to comment elsewhere or participate in other related activities). I am forced to admit that this situation is likely to continue for an extended period of time and must reset my own expectations regarding my online participation in political dialog. Hopefully I will be able write something on a weekly basis (or I can still dream of twice in a week). As I write less I anticipate that comments will drop to a level that I can still manage (safe guess as they have already done so).
I sincerely hope that I can offer thoughts that others will find valuable even as I scale back the time and energy available for that purpose. At the least, those who are paying close enough attention to wonder at my relative silence will have an explanation – and may know what to expect going forward.
