As you have probably noticed, the last daily column at this site was posted on Monday evening, April 25 – and there’s been nothing since. There’s a reason for that. This is a one-man operation and Tuesday afternoon I was hospitalized – the one man in this particular case was offline, on a gurney in the hallway of big emergency room on Sunset Boulevard smack in the middle of Hollywood, for about ten hours on a Tuesday evening. And then it was the rest of the week on one of the wards, kind of out of it on IV-drip and that sort of thing – although the royal wedding was very nice, on morphine. Needless to say, this was no time for detailed political analysis. And I was discharged late in the afternoon on Saturday, April 30 – so, well, no one fed the blog for five days – sorry about that.
There will naturally be some recovery time – so the next daily column may be delayed. And surgery comes next – to be scheduled soon. Drat.
But do drop by now and then. I might write a new column soon, just to keep engaged in the national dialog about this and that. That is endlessly fascinating. Or I may just sit quietly and smoke my pipe and think about writing a column – and then pop a few pills and take a nap. We’ll see.
But thank you to all the readers over the last few years. And one way or another I will be back.
