Shameless Little Plug

Some of you - those still bothering to visit here at all - have probably noticed that I haven't exactly been keeping up this last few weeks. The reason is that the US presidential campaign season is now well under way, a mere 14 months before the election. Those of you who have visited my old static site spent much time around here know that I am quite political. [On update: in moving my old website I deep sixed the outdated political pieces.]

I intend to keep politics out of this blog, but self-restraint is no excuse not to toot my own horn, and a few days ago I sold a short political analysis piece to the European Courier. They're a young analytical ezine aimed at an internationalist, mainly European audience. The money won't have us vacationing on the French Riviera, or even the Redneck Riviera, but actually getting paid to write about politics is - what can I say? - really, really cool.

And no, I don't intend to abandon this blog for the duration. (You could get to Mars faster than that, even on a Hohmann orbit, if you had a ship.) God willing and the river don't rise, I'll have a real post up here tomorrow. Meanwhile I'll bask in being a "journalist and political commentator."

Anita - It's not so much the money as the idea of money.

"the idea of money"

And of course the IRS will understand.
