Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett
Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Well. I didn't mean to be gone for the better part of a week, but such is life. Or lack thereof, in my case.

No, I lie. I had a life over the weekend. Paul and I went out with some friends to watch Alice in Wonderland. The operative word, of course, is "out." As in "away from the computer."

The WIP is cracking along. I should start shaming myself by offering up a daily word count. Nothint on it so far today other than some scribbled notes, but I did pop out about 500 words on the New Super Sekkrit Project. No, I can't tell you lest someone breaks my fingers in retaliation. The only thing I can say is that this may be going on for some time, and it looks like it will be a fun project. I can do with fun.

Somewhat related to a recent post regarding civility and politics, C. E. Petit weighs in one aspect of free speech. (See his fourth bullet point.) One quote: "...misuse of free speech rights cannot be allowed to lead to their forfeiture, else "misuse" enlarges to swallow the rights themselves." Yes, I know: This is a different situation, but the outcome is the same. The shouters are ruining it for the rest of us.

Alrighty. I have some real work to get done today. Not looking forward to it, but it has to be done.
