You might have noticed a bit of slacking off here at The Happy Carpenter lately. That's because I feel exactly like my ol' blog buddy Porph does:
This is one of the things that has contributed to my lack of blogging recently. By no means the only reason I haven't blogged, but a significant one. Repeatedly having to rebut "BUSH LIED"! and all the other bogus distractions that act as a substitute for intelligent civic discourse is not my idea of the best use of time. I know it has to be done, and I can link to all the things, be they on WMD, intelligence, ties to terrorism (see below) and the like which refutes the litany, have done it before and likely will do it again, but this Sisyphean task grows wearisome.
Indeed. Plus, it's August. Go with it. Even though, down here in Florida, the kinder are back in school, it's still the summer doldrums. It's 93 degrees and 93% humidity, and the damn boat is sinking, so I've got to go.
