The semester break and Christmas vacation officially begin on December 11 at 3:00 P.M. I have an unusually-heavy teaching schedule the next few days and am taking a short blog break until my workload eases off. In addition, I need some time to consider the direction in which to take this blog after the debacle of an election on November 6.
I've reached a crossroads.
There is little point in slamming the Obama administration in post after post.
There is no point in cataloging the devolution of America in post after post while preaching only to the choir and, at the same time, making myself apprehensive and miserable.
Life is too short to spend so much time doing something that is both depressing and futile.
Life shouldn't consist of all politics all the time.
On the other hand, I enjoy blogging and plan to continue doing so.
Perhaps I'll have a new perspective after taking a short break.
