An Apology

I apologize for the lack of posts for the last four days.
The comments on the previous post - plus the emails wondering if I'm alive - all of this has been gratifying. I had no idea how many people read this thing over breakfast !

I only have dial-up internet at home (soon to be remedied) but I also have a work-issued Sprint/Nextel wireless system.

Marvel Variants used the Sprint/Nextel antenna for a couple of weeks on some road trips. He didn't ASK for the antenna. He just sent someone from our I.T. department to collect it. This will cost him much Karma in his future lives (as an insect), and it will possibly cost him sales on his damn deformed funny books. God is not mocked. May the market be suddenly flooded with old variant comics. May thousands of them be discovered in every attic.

(Seriously, Marvel Variants is a great guy for someone who is going to hell.)

Anyway, I just couldn't get any mojo working on the dial-up system. Links and pics took forever. But now I'm back in bidness.

I owe Dr. Ralph several rebuttals, there's the Fort Worth gun show tomorrow (come by the Libertarian party booth !), Obama had a pointless press conference, Chrysler has gone bankrupt after borrowing a lot of your money, our Human Resources manager has objected to the coffee site in my Spiritual Advisors category, Bart Ehrmann has a new book out, Bob Dylan has a new CD, they didn't close my Starbucks, and I've offended some guy from an electric car website.

So much to do, so little time....

Rebut away. I've got an 18 year old at home who makes cracks about the "nanny state" and thinks I'm a total nincompoop (except when he needs me for tier 2 tech support). Plus at our last family gathering, my baby brother came out of the Libertarian closet. I knew that copy of the Economist on his coffee table was a bad sign.

You sir, are the least of my worries.

Dr. Ralph~I'll trade you, I would rather have libertarians in my family than the republicans I have to deal with. Libertarians take pride in being informed and are willing to debate, my republican family just drools the party line, it's like eating barbecue with Rush Limpballs and Ann Coultergeist.

I just laughed out loud over the word "Coultergeist". I haven't paid much attention to her in about a year. (If you get a chance, Google the words Ann, Coulter, and Sepulchre.)

I might need some Tier 2 tech support.

Dr Ralph said...

Flee, I'm with you: I'd much rather contend with Libertarians than Republicans (of which there are many in my extended family). At least they make sense some of the time (and don't endlessly repeat things they heard on Fox Noise).

WS - I am at your disposal for tier 2 support. Is this for dealing with home broadband?

Dr. Ralph... think of it as 'invasion of the body snatchers in reverse'.

WS - I'm just glad you had time to insult the guy on the electric car site.

By the way, I think your captcha keeps making me type almost-dirty words.
