A good blogger to me is somebody who moderates comments, is constantly reading new blogs, and commenting. I just don’t have the time or mental energy for that. Not now. I need to write and to write I begin blogs. I have a few private ones and one not so secret one.
Courting isn’t going on hiatus. I will be writing and moderating comments but I won’t be commenting until I’m in a different space. I mean that physically. Actually I go through this every few months. I’m obsessed with blogging and admire bloggers who never tire of commenting. I’m not comment crazy and enjoy reading blogs without commenting often but then I’m called a lurker. I don’t understand why “reader” isn’t acceptable and people can’t be happy with people reading their blogs without commenting at times.
The three most exciting parts of the State of the Union address to me where:
3) Looking at men’s ties–and I don’t have a large TV or LCD or plasma
2) Watching Ted Kennedy sleep–for one of the few times in my life I agreed completely with David Brooks–on my birthday, or the next day in 1969, he knew he could never become President so he focused on becoming a great senator
1) Watching Nancy Pelosi try to find a proper facial expression–she went through every fake smile I know
I don’t usually link editorials but I loved this one. On what could have been had our president made a different speech six years ago.
CAN YOU SAY PORK BARREL? I ADMIT I KEPT FALLING ASLEEP BUT I WOULD WAKE TO HEAR BUSH TALK AGAIN AND AGAIN ABOUT ENDING OR DRASTICALLY REDUCING EAR MARKED RESOURCES.
YES WORLD, THE SAME MAN WHO SENT NEW YORK’S POST 9/11 AIDE TO WYOMING AS THEY NEEDED IT SO MUCH MORE. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I can no longer afford to live in New York a city that faces a huge deficit–a city that looks all sparkly on the outside but–if it weren’t for private conservatories, Wall Street, tourism and people like me who are paying huge moving taxes–New York would already be in worse shape than it was during the fabled bad days.
Yes we got the aide. Three years late. I still don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Maybe America needed to be taken down a notch. To be humbled. But we deserved a president who gave a damn. The Hillary of the “misguided” health reform did. This Hillary, i’m not sure about. I am sure that Barack Obama does.
