It's the Green Man's Fault!
Here I am, despite misgivings, presenting myself in a virtual forum. It's the Green Man's fault, having recommended the blogosphere as an anodyne to sociopolitical despair. He, of course, has his own blog, which he posts to with a nearly religious regularly. Iself don't anticipate such productivity, and am not nearly as cute. But, the slow seed that he hath planted has convinced me that a publik rant is good for the soul. Besides, where else should I keep all of the flinders of writing that I pound out? Might as well put them here.
