Blogging, man, who has the time anymore? Pretty much anything longer than 140 characters looks alien to me nowadays. And yet it seems that now and again you just need a place to put things on the internet, and so then there you are. I used to blog quite a bit, but much of it is half-baked commentary on then-current events and when I reread that stuff, I realize how much more pleasant it is to have such tediously tendentious matters relegated to the Warner-Bros.-cartoon-assembly-line generator of ephemera that is Twitter. However, there are some good bits in there too, and so I hope to relocate all of those in one place, and hopefully, henceforward, add only things that also qualify as good bits. Excelsior.
