For the first time in six years–six years, 312 weeks!–I have not written a Newswithviews column. So you won’t see one tomorrow, unless they fill the hole with a “best of.” Which I hope they do, because I rely on those columns to attract readers to this blog.
Normally I write these and send them in on Monday, to be published on Thursday.
This week I never even thought of it until a few minutes ago.
Blame it on the weather: went from freezing to sweltering just about overnight. Blame it on Social Security, which has suddenly discovered new ways of harassing us about Aunt Joan’s finances. Just as soon as I crawled out of the tar pit at the bank, I fell into yet another one. Blame it on the Bossa Nova.
And I just don’t have the gas today to whip up a column on such short notice.
Well, I hope they don’t kick me off the team for missing this one game. But if they do, it’ll be that much more time and energy available for books and blogging.
