Sorry it has been so quiet around here of late. Summers tend to make a lot of extra demands on my time and it is quite a bit worse this year. For starters, the home office for the Iconic Midwest will be moving from west-central Minnesota to Dayton, Ohio at the end of this month. As I only found out about this yesterday it will be a bit of a scramble I'm afraid.
But I'll do my best to keep the place going until mid-August when things should be back to normal, or maybe even a little bit better than normal.
For those who might find it hard to go on without a bit of my patented complaining I'll just add:
I hate it when I hear reporters acting like they are granting me (or anyone else) a favor by doing their jobs. Last time I checked they were getting paid better than most to do their jobs (particularly the T.V. "reporters" who are the worst of the sanctimonious windbags.) So, you can forgive me if I don't feel they deserve a special "Noble Prize for Adopting a Holier Than Thou Attitude."
There. Don't you feel better?
