There’s plenty of stuff crossing my radar that I really should write something about. But for what is probably the sixth time or more, I’m again pulling out Hugh Prather’s observation, “If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing then the desire is not to write.” So, what the hell, here’s some of the stuff I been thinking about blogging about — and still might.
- When I had my blood tests for and my annual physical last week, I was asked screening questions for Ebola. This included not only if I’d traveled to one of Ebola-affected countries in West Africa within the last 21 days but whether I’ve had close contact with a person or a dead body of someone known or suspected to have Ebola.
- I don’t think the mayor and others would be quite so eager to save the snowplow art if one of the plows had “Allahu Akbar” painted on it.
- Somewhat related is why atheists seem to be the most hated group in the U.S.
- The tax protester movement of the ’70s and ’80s becoming the “sovereign citizen” movement and the craziness displayed in the frivolous litigation it generates.
- Bookishly: books I don’t know if I want to read; books I hated that everyone else loved; great books I know I’ll never read; what books I consider to have influenced me most (there’s a similar music one floating out there, too)
Someday you might see one or more of these topics on the blog — or not.
The trouble with procrastination is that people give up on it too soon.
