Not This Week
Attentive readers know what that blank billboard means. It's not like I didn't try to put up a post today. Indeed, I put in way too much time trying to hammer a post into shape that finally -- perhaps inevitably -- grew to be much too long. Reading it over this morning, it was clear that I could either publish an unwieldy and somewhat confusing post, or do what I should have in the first place -- unsheathe the Salomonic Sword and cut that clumsy pair of Siamese Twins in half, and thus (hopefully) create two somewhat more reader-friendly posts.
I chose the latter path, but alas, too late. Separating Siamese Twins is never quite as simple as it sounds, and since writing this blog is supposed to be a somewhat rewarding activity rather than a self-induced sentence to Punishment Park, I'm throwing in the towel for this Sunday.
Hey, I had a hard week, folks. The sun is going down and I just can't pull that rabbit out of my hat this time. But all is not lost. Place your cursor right here and click your way over to Rob Long's latest offering at Martini Shot, where he discusses the difference between reflexively sneering at a stupid idea, and realizing that when looked at a different way, the very same idea just might be pretty smart after all.
It's all in the execution -- and at only three minutes and twenty-six seconds, well worth your time.
The storm clouds are already building over next week, but I'll try to get one of those posts up by Sunday come Hell or high water.
