Given that the LSAT was on Monday and I now have a little more free time on my hands than I used to, I am (as promised) back to the blog - and yes I recognize the irony of welcoming myself back. While the three people who may or may not have regularly followed this bad boy have probably moved onto greener (and more entertaining) pastures, I do look forward to the occasional wayward internet surfer who stumbles upon this site.
In all seriousness, there are some new blog-related things. Well, only one now that I think about it. I'm sure you've all heard of this crazy thing the kids today are doing called Twitter. Well, I decided to set one up for this blog. I come across many stories on a daily basis that I would like to talk about, but do not have the time/energy to. With Twitter I can write a snarky 140 character summary of the story with a link. You can check it out here and click "Follow" to keep track of my tweets.
And while I haven't been writing in the blog recently, I still had some writing-related things going on. My neighbor and friend Charles P. Pierce recently wrote a book called Idiot America about the stupidity of some people in this country. If you're not familiar with Pierce's writing, he's funny and entertaining to read and you can read this piece, which was the front page article of the Boston Globe magazine this past weekend, as a warm up. Anyway, pick up a copy of the book and read the acknowledgments, because you may see a familiar name.
So expect a post or two in the coming days. A lot of important things have happened that I would have liked to write about, not the least of which is the unbelievably juvenile behavior of the New York State Senate. I'm anything but a fan of possible felon Hiram Monserrate, so to hear that he and fellow sleaze Pedro Espada, Jr. were behind this middle school girl behavior was not surprising. Infuriating, but not surprising. Peace.
