I obviously haven't posted anything here for half a week. Sometimes I've had the urge, but not the time. Occasionally I've had the time, but not the energy. And when I've had the energy, sometimes I haven't had the urge. I'm afraid my interest in this election survived only until the last two weeks before the vote, and apparently no longer. Worse, I throw myself into the details every morning before dawn and don't emerge until the early afternoon. This is too much on top of enough already. If I worked in another industry I'd probably be blogging up a storm. Ironic, huh?
Wolf ads? Missing explosives? Clinton and Giuliani (and maybe Schwarzenegger)? Newspaper endorsements? Bush's travel schedule? I have opinions about all of these, but I can't say they're unique enough to warrant spending all the rest of my remaining time in front of a computer typing them out. If that makes me a bad blogger, well, so be it. I will continue to follow the race as closely as everyone else in this town, and I do care about the outcome, but that doesn't mean I'll be writing about it.
In other news, I have now cast my ballot in the state of Oregon (sorry, EYDP) and mailed it back. While the decisions I made on that ballot may not be a great surprise, I'll return on election day to summarize my votes. Will I return before that? It's possible. In fact, whenever I make announcements of hiatus, I'm usually back online in another day or so. I don't think that will happen this time, but you never know. At the very least, I'll see you on E-Day.
In the meantime, I'll be reading. From a book. About something other than politics. I should really do this more often.
