It’s been nearly a month since the last FCR. One would think I’d have plenty to write about today, but eh, not so much. Dredging the Internet for the awesome and the absurd hasn’t been a real high priority lately.
If history teaches us nothing else, it teaches us the notion of “the good old days” is a myth and a sham. Need proof? Consider Charles Guiteau. He was a piece of work for the ages, one who put our contemporary wingnuts to shame.
David Koresh had nothing on this guy.
Indeed, the 1881 series of events which led to Guiteau’s place in history look absolutely preposterous when viewed through the lenses of today. Yet there they are.
As I’ve alluded to on several occasions, my health has really taken a beating recently. Unfortunately it has deteriorated to the point where I can no longer commit to six high quality posts a week without placing an undue amount of stress on myself. Frankly I’ve been in denial of that for a few days now, and the corresponding drop in quality really shows. Accordingly, this will be the last SB post for a while.
I don’t know how long this hiatus will be. It might only be a few days, it might be a lot longer. I will say this is NOT the end of Superfluous Bloviations. The site isn’t going anywhere. Posts will resume as soon as I feel better.
Please don’t worry about me; I’m going to be OK. Indeed, making sure I’m OK is perhaps the number one reason for this. I appreciate everyone’s support over the last seven months or so. It really means a lot.
