Update: At bottom of post
I think I've been paying a little too much attention the last few weeks and it has finally gotten to me.
The straw that broke the back of the imaginary heffalump, that, by all accounts has never, ever been beaten by the Nanny of the uncle's cousin's wife of a former denizen of Spam-A-Lot, was this.
It's all explained in just enough detail here and here to make me (almost) think that the Codswallopanarianists might actually winning.
And that's not even the serious stuff like, say, this.
I'll be back in awhile.
Update: just a short note of thanks to all the folks who took the time to comment....I really apologize for leaving you all hanging....Everything's fine...I just found myself losing my sense of humour with the poli-blogging a little...And when that happens I've learned it's time to take a bit of a break....Otherwise I find myself becoming just another perspectiveless screamer, which is no fun, and almost always counter-productive...Thanks again for the wonderful comments. That really was most unexpected and, to be honest, kind of floored me a little.
