I Thought I Was Serious…

Am I serious? Sometime early tomorrow morning, I’ll pass the 2000 mile mark for the year’s running. There will be no balloons, or bands and Ann Wessling won’t be cheering me in the last fifty yards. Chances are, in fact, I won’t be completely sure when it happens, I’m most often drifting in and out[…]

Is Nothing Something?

Writer’s block has crept into this blog today. Or maybe it’s nothing block. I feel like writing something but nothing is popping into my head. So, being a go-with-the-flow kind of guy, I guess I’ll write about nothing. The question is: is nothing something? For nine years (and many more in syndication) the widely acclaimed[…]

Two observations: First, the slides are brutal. I haven’t seen this many[…]
