I'm Gonna Take Me Drac to the Past

I was inspired to try a move from this BlogSpot blog to WordPress by a webmaster who made a similar move to a new website a decade ago today.

That didn't get me to blog much more than I was already barely blogging.  But if I am going to have a personal blog, it might as well be back here.

So here I am.

I Didn't Totally Blow the Months Off, Either

I thought I'd take less than two months be blogging here in 2022, but I have been sending in my monthly op-ed commentary pieces to the William Lloyd Garrison Center for Libertarian Advocacy Journalism (this month's is on its way later this week) for my editor Thomas L. Knapp, for whom blogging less than once a day is partially blowing the month off.

More Troubles, More Twitter

 A decade ago today, I joined Twitter.

Then I waited a month of "figuring out how to use it" to blog about joining Twitter.

Then I spent a couple years neglecting blogging while figuring out how to use Twitter.

Then I spent more years neglecting both blogging and Twitter. Sometimes on Facebook, sometimes just not posting much online at all.

But I'm still here... and there.

Man in Black Smart (Queen of Queens Smarter)

While tickets are available for the Queens Drive-In's screening of Men in Black, I may as well blog my letter to the editor from back in April about the cosmic classic, and how the real-world Queens borough hopefully is more exemplary of its populism than its simultaneous distrust of the populace.

Alex P. Keaton's favorite economist with Leonard E. Read favorite tool
Someday, I'll get around to elaborating on how everything wrong with American politics is that it's in the image of All in the Family rather than Family Ties, but for now, I have a letter championing Alex P. Keaton over Archie Bunker that made it to the editorial pages of the Queens Chronicle.
