In and Out and About

This is one of those state-of-the-blog blog posts.

I've just returned from a week and a half of vacationing in Spain after moving from Chicago, which would be the reason for the not blogging or Friday Poetry-ing or anything of the kind. For the next few weeks I expect to have at least a bit more leisure time.

I've also decided that the retirement date of this blog will be after Election Day in 2008. I don't intend to be in the country for that election, but I do hope to continue blogging (really, probably not any more sporadically than now). But since I started this blog as a response to the 2004 election, it seems reasonable, in a literary fashion, to stop it after the 2008.

Even if it should turn out that after the election there's some sort of attack or event that "merits" the implementation of NSPD-51, thereby indefinitely deferring the inauguration of Barack Obama and allowing Messrs. Bush, Cheney and Chertoff absolute and legally interminable control over the nation.

Just sayin' it's possible.

Either way, Third Rail Themes will officially retire on November 4, 2008. But expect some deliciously juicy posts in the interim.
