New project, less time for blogging


When do you ever see anyone say, “Finished that, now I have much more time to devote to writing on this blog?”

You won’t see it here, today, either.

A new project beckons — exciting, important, low-pay and time consuming — and I’m off.  I’ll try to keep the water in Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub warm and comfortable, at least.

Readers can help out, with comments.  For example, right now the post on the hoax quiz on Hillary Clinton quotes is hotter’n a three-dollar pistol — but no one’s commenting.  I can’t tell where the hits are coming from.   It would be nice if some of the viewers would at least comment on why they dropped by.

A few readers are engaged in conversations on a few different threads — good stuff, mostly, even with internetbloggy bluster thrown in.

The rate of posts is likely to drop from last month.  I’m off for much of the rest of the afternoon, and I’ll be in the library this evening with the younger son (though, now that I think about it, the library has wi-fi; hmmmm).

Talk amongst yourselves.  Register for the Stanton Sharp history seminar February 9 at SMU.  I’ll post details about another Dallas history seminar set for January 26, perhaps this evening, and about another, really wonderful symposium coming up in April.

Thank you for reading; thank you for commenting.  You history, economics and civics teachers, thank you for everything.  You students, thank you for working not to repeat the errors in history.

Thank you.

    Enjoy your “break”, Ed! You are so prolific, it is hard to read (much less comment) as often as I would like (and I think this applies to most folks too).
    Thanks for all you do!
    No worries, we will be here, and post when you want to :-)

    Oh come now. I’ve a job and a fish tank and a wife and a dog, but I still find the time to remember to call someone a nitwit every day!
