I’m too disheartened to write today. Back tomorrow, I hope.

I’m coming off a rather rugged weekend, and other obligations are demanding my attention, so I’ll be taking today off from the site. Back tomorrow, I hope.

There’s a lot going on here, and not enough of me to keep up with all of it and produce an essay. See you tomorrow.

I have a long list of chores to discharge, and I was planning to compile an “assorted” column anyway, so here are the links. If you’re a Gentle Reader of long standing, you hardly need me to comment on these things. They more or less comment on themselves: Bombshell Revelations from the “Special Master” …

Exhausted. Must rest. Back tomorrow, with luck. Have a nice day.

I have unpleasant things to do that will probably leave me foaming at the mouth, so I won’t be posting an essay today. But if you haven’t yet, read about this outrage at one of America’s most prestigious universities. Then ask yourself “What would Fran say about this?” That should fill the blank spot …

I’ve had a computer failure, and am typing this on one of my lab computers, so there’ll be no essay today. Pray for me as I clumsily swap parts among my various machines to determine what the BLEEP! has gone wrong with Ol’ Cyclops. (Is there a patron saint of computers? Or of the people …

The week was a strenuous one for us at the Fortress, and I need to attend to a few domestic matters at once, so I’ll be taking the day off from Liberty’s Torch. Expect to see fresh rantings tomorrow. Until then, be well.

I’ll be offline much of today, as I must take the C.S.O. to a medical procedure a good distance away. It will take several hours, during which I’ll be hopping up and down and jittering about waiting with my justly famous confidence and world-renowned patience in a nearby coffee shop while the flesh mechanics …

…for lounging about… …for reading Tolkien… …for watching videos of cute animals… …and, as it was memorably phrased by that monumental icon of American culture, the Beaver, “just goofing off.” I need a respite. So here are a few loose links to stuff you might find interesting: Dio on “Back …
