Apologies, noble readers...

Not that there hasn't been a lot to talk about this past month or so. There certainly has been. Unfortunately for me my summer has been jam packed and the blog has suffered.

I had a family trip I had to take at the beginning of July which left me without a phone or internet for ten days, when I returned I was 10 days behind in my coursework in the graduate program I'm attending in a summer intensive program and had to concentrate on catching up. Only two courses, but they required 18 pages of writing each per week, plus the readings and screenings of films.

Then, literally the week following the end of those classes I've been teaching a week-long intensive course at the graduate level. Cramming a full semester course into one week has left no time at all for anything else.

I even missed Bob Novak exploding on CNN yesterday and walking off the set, followed by his suspension from CNN. Now you KNOW how much I regret missing that!

I know I should have had a column about the change in language from war on terrorism to struggle against extremism, John Bolton, Bush saying he is in favor of teaching intelligent design, and a whole bunch of other stuff, but I've been over my head with other obligations.

I know, I suck.

But, the upside is that my students give their final presentations today--20 students giving back to back 20 minute Power Point presentations....can you say "Hell"?

Starting Monday, I'll try to give my noble readers at least a weekly fix of my astute observations and inimitable phrasings...or forever stop complaining not enough people read this page.

Sorry Rhonda, to you in particular. Thanks for noticing I was gone.

Oh so now he returns. After making me stalk him for weeks. Well, do what you have to do and then GET BACK HERE. I couldn't believe you were not commenting on Novak. It looks like he is now well and truly sunk. Karma. Whaaa haa haaa.
Here is hoping those Power Point presentations are all different enough to prevent you from going insane! Good luck!
