It is my understanding that this week's "Meet the Press" featured an EXCLUSIVE! with John Boehner, followed by a panel featuring David Brooks and Mark Halperin.
It's like someone found Richard Cohen's porn stash.
I happily missed it all.
Instead, I spent the last several days doing family things: shoveling out cliffs and glacierettes of leftover snow w/ neighbors while kids built impregnable fortresses in the piles; visiting the Garfield Park Conservatory for a breath of Spring; watching Speed Racer and Rocky & Bullwinkle reruns with the wee ones; cooking; taking kids to grandma's; making up bedtime stories about fictional towns in real places...all while working my p/t gig hard during the interstitial hours and doing lots of packing, unpacking and driving.
So, in lieu of a standard post-Mouse Circus Excoriation, some overdue "Thank Yous" for all the people who left such kind comments downstream...
Many, many thanks. The logistics of all of this is still up in the air, but I can say that much depends on finding the right balance among a lot of tricksie variables, some of which I never had to think about before. I can say for sure that, no matter what we end up doing, it will be good news for John McCain.
Capt. Bat Guano,
Indeed it is.
Though Allah be the wiser!
We will strive to argue just enough.
Zombie rotten mcdonald,
Tell the shamblers "hey", thanks from us.
res ipsa loquitur,
Been a long,strange trip, eh?
Kathryn in MA,
"Well" indeed. Considering I went into blogging for wealth, fame and women. I was beginning to think, like, Bogie, that I had been misinformed.
The great cosmic muffin is kind. As to your vote, well, this is Chicago :-)
Testing the ancient theory that two can podcast as cheaply as one :-)
I would not give the "anonymity thing" a 2nd thought...if I lived in anything approaching a meritocracy where (all things being equal) job security was based on how hard and/or brilliantly one did one's jobs, and not "at will" where a single peeved asshole or rival with the right connections can get you fired on a whim.
I do not live in that world.
Thanks. No, it just means I've been doing my job :-)
Thanks. You put that very well.
Anything for the cause ;-)
