Obviously, I’m still working through this whole blog thing. Where I think this is going:
– Huge ideas, chopped up and packaged into little largely incoherent chunks. Just got through reading a John C Wright post. Mr Wright has a better grasp on the problems than I do – he acknowledges up front that all he’s giving is an outline. It’s good stuff. I, on the other hand, have struggled mightily to say very similar things, using a less formal, more slap-upside-the-head style (self inflicted, of course – you know, you get it and say ‘of course!’ That’s it!’ and smack yourself lightly. I’m not into slapping anyone.) But of course, this stands a lottery ticket’s chance of success. You all have better things to do, I suppose.
– I’ve avoided family stuff so far. It’s fun, and amusing, but also invasive. Not sure I can face my kids asking them if I can blog about our personal lives. But it would be fun.
– And then there’s politics. I find this week’s batch of scandals and politicians pretty boring most weeks. The ‘let’s forget history, math, science, our own founding documents, tradition, human happiness and all that other bathtub ring of a dead, patriarchal scum, and just do the right thing’ attitude more than a little disturbing and stupid. And funny! Well, once in a while. So that’s more what I’m writing about, rather than front page news, except by way of illustration.
So, on to the next shiny object passing before my eyes….
