Fell in a Black Hole

Or something like that anyway. Kind of began with my frustration with the blogosphere in general, grew considerably over something a fellow blogger did and then we lost a family member in the tornados that hit Missouri back in May. At that point I could not bring myself to care if we managed to blow ourselves to smithereens much less what the talking heads had to say about anything.

Life goes on though, in spite of my continued struggle not to simply see us as a failed species.

Soooo....I'm going to try over the next week to catch up on reading my favorite blogs and um, yeah, try not to say "I told you so" about John Edwards. At least not too much anyway because really aside from some idle interest on how poorly most people read character, I don't especially care. I admit to laughing my ass off at anyone using the name "McCain" and the word "gravitas" in the same sentence after offering up his wife for a topless biker beauty pageant. Do not speak to me of anything Clinton unless you would like me to come unwrapped on your ass.

No, I haven't been out stumping for Obama or anyone else. It all looks pretty simple to me, Obama will most likely win this and if he does not we are most definitely screwed and I'll send you a postcard from Mexico. We are likely somewhat screwed regardless because we are way too deep in the shit for any one person or administration to dig us all the way out, best we can hope for is we get one that at least has shovels and know how to use them.

Will try to get back soon with something more coherent but you have fair warning, my misanthropic view of the world has only grown in my absence.

First, my condolences on the loss of your family member. Tornadoes scare the crap out of me and I don't mind to admit it. Having lived in Britain fifty-odd years without tornadoes, coming to Illinois and experiencing one or two passing within a few miles has managed to age me more than my four previous wives between them ever achieved.
Nothing's changed since your last post in April. The world's still a mess. George Bush is constantly swamped with job offers by traveling circuses, and Republican senators are regularly caught with their pants down.
I wish I felt more confidence in Obama. You're right he'll have problems digging us out, even if he does turn out to be Jesus reincarnated. Either way, he'll be better than the present lot, or McCain. I just wish I could lose the bad feeling that he'll never make inauguration. Memories of JFK and Bro, I guess.
Good to know you're still about. Hang around, it gets funnier.

Four (4!) previous wives, R.J.? And I thought I had the crap beat out of me by the eight (8!) previous years of Busheney! And now McCain? Mexico will be barring their door. But I'm confident that BHO will improve things as long as we can keep him safe!

Sorry to hear about your loss, and about the "Black Hole". I've been in one myself and I know how hard it can be to crawl back out again.

Glad to know that you're still alive and kicking, though. As a "goddamned foreigner" I find your blog (and the comments) entertaining and instructive, an irresistible combination.

Yes. Sigh.

Oh shit, hey. Good to see and hear you back! Keep your head above water, make a wave when you can.

I wish they had a Miss Anthropy contest. If they can have a beauty contest for nuns, they surely could have a competition for the "fed ups" of the world.

N.E., you have a self-obliterating nick. Yuchhh!
