The Return of the Dead

Hi, boys and girls.  We turned 60 last month and got all nostalgic and shit for the days when we used to blog a lot.  Blogging is dead and Huffington Post killed it.

We have returned from the Land of the Dead to revive blogging and we are going to do it here, on Skippy's site, and in so doing, we will save the cheerleader, because if you save the cheerleader...you know how that goes.

Thanks. I'm delighted that some folks are still around. I have a piece in draft for this site I have to work on, but I have to work for a living today too.

I am fascinated to discover that every idea I have about government is actually an idea I have about politics.
