Awake Again


When are you going to put something different here for me to mount more unreasonable and irrational attacks? This site is getting a bit stale.

Well, yes. I have to agree with my correspondent in Des Moines, who likes to lacerate my writings. “Stale” is an understatement. Since Jan. 25, this site has been deader than Robert E. Lee. I have been providing my correspondent with no targets.

I apologize to readers—if any remain. Our problem, here at the editorial staff, was that the colleague who posted our writings was reassigned to another department, so that there was no full-time employee who had responsibility for doing it. There was a part-time person, and we could have blogged three days a week but we thought, “What is the point of three days a week?” and so did not blog at all.

Vacation’s over. I am undertaking to learn how to post a blog—and one with links to columns at other newspapers, like this one on smoking or this story on the sex hormones of cockroaches . Do these links work? Give ’em a try.
