From the desk of The Rigorist
I apologize for my unexplained absence. I’ve been rude. It’s an unintended talent.
I live in a house that needs fixing. It’s been getting fixed this last week and a half.
I have a gutted garage apartment that suddenly has tenents. They are a homeless couple from South Carolina in their 30’s, children really, and I’m struggling to find balance for our reciprocal needs. They need to earn their keep. I say that precisely. I don’t need for them to earn their keep. Their gratitude and enthusiasm would have me in their debt without my constant restraint. I’ll turn this into a political point later.
I also have a blog, or at least a place on one, and that needs attention that it hasn’t gotten.
- kayinmaine, I shouldn’t have taunted you. I’m going to leave it at that lest I become ‘talented’.
- Rutherford, my perfectionism had silenced me. I’ll be back to work here this evening.
- I thank everyone who browsed Rutherford’s blog, but especially those who said not unkind words of me.
Finally, to address the ugly gossip and speculation that I might give aid to McCain, If I did that then I would feel personally responsible for the inevitable tragedy of John McCain’s election. It takes no intelligence to shoot at a blimp nor skill to hit one bumbling across the ground within the range of a shotgun. I do it to goad Democrats into arguing the issues. The guys at the McCain campaign are jus’ gettin’ beered up on the weekends and having some fun. That would be cool except that they’re blowing other people’s money on the ammo.
