Damn, still about 150 words shy.  Blogging is way less fun when I have to do it like I'm trying to have a text message conversation about politics. (My most difficult to write texts are usually political in nature.) To my regular readers, if anyone wants to come out of lurking and comment, does my blogging style differ substantially when I'm writing on days without power from when I'm doing my regular posts? Which do you like better?

I strongly suspect that this post won't end up being long enough. If it is, good night. If not, I will write again shortly.
