All right, guys. Let me say it: this blog is dead. I posted something back in May 2011 that got zero comments. Which is okay, because the thing was a blathering and incoherent treatise on realpolitik or some such.
I don’t speak to Dorothea anymore, which makes me really sad, and is an opportunity problem more than a willingness problem. Beyond that crippling issue, I don’t miss the blog much, either. I’d rather write a novel.
We gots the Facebook and the Google Pluses. And to be frank, if I want to rage on the internet regarding some political or foreign policy issue, better to do that in a more controlled setting than blasting it into the public end of cyberspace, where no one savory is reading anyway.
If any of my peeps are ever re-interested in the war blog, I have a copy of it. Some of those posts are truly classic, but most of them were the rantings of a wounded soul who couldn’t go home. My wounds seem less tragic by the second, and those of others have always been far deeper.
As for angry civics blogs, I read a lot of Fabius Maximus these days. They’re angrier than I, and generally better footnoted.
As for the future? None can say. I plan to hold this blog until I figure out a better use to put it to. Game blog?
