Busy, Busy, Busy
Posting today (I'd like to rant about the bullshite "bailout" bill) will be late in the day. The weather has gathered a delightful autumnal chill unto itself and I'm doing housework, desk work, writing a letter to the editor of the Washington Times, and starting to outline a new story idea I had as I emerged from sleep this morning. The opening rips off Tolstoy but in the "homage" way - not the "gimme your idea" way. Opening is fine, the REST of the story (oh great - now I rip off Paul Harvey) is the work that needs to be done.
UPDATE: It looks my letter to the editor is indeed going to be printed though the date of its appearance is uncertain. But periodicals always try to be timely with letters so I expect it'll be soon.
