For the past month or so, I’ve been on an enforced moratorium from political news. As a practical matter, this means that I have been limited to local news, sports, and, to a greater degree lately, technology sites.
It’s amazing how much more pleasant life is just being ignorant. My life is pretty good right now. Why worry about the “have nots” in the world or the country’s future, or what kind of world I’m going to leave my kid? (Let the heavens fall so long as queers can’t get married, right?)
Anyway, that moratorium was originally supposed to be for a month, which is now up. Maybe I’ll extend it a bit. I’m more up to speed on local news, and it gives me more time to noodle around with tech projects such as switching from blogger to movable type.
