I’m back, and I’m bad. Or else I need to clean out the cat litter box. Anyway, this is the new blog for 2008. Which is an election year in the U.S. of A. I really need to move to another galaxy.

Note: you will have to register to comment (scroll down to the bottom of the sidebar for the “Register” link). I realize this is an inconvenience, but each time I visit a non-moderated comment thread and see the incontinent feces-throwing thereon I renew my vow to always have registration-only comments. At least this time it’s not through Typekey. Your first comment will be held in the moderation queue but once I have accepted it the rest of your comments will appear automatically.
