Time to Batten Down the Hatches

Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night.

It looks like we're about to get battered by Hurricane Irene. This blog recently got nailed by Hurricane WTF. Due to an inability to raise funds, quite a number of entries were deleted. Free speech is not available for the poor. That's my conclusion.

Nonetheless, everything has been saved. I do expect to find a way to fight back against this injustice. Due to obvious reasons, I am not able to share details at this time.

So where does that leave this blog? I'm not exactly sure. I am happy the bulk of it survived. I do expect to be able to restore the lost information, i.e. facts and opinion based on facts, sometime in the future.

I found a nifty gadget. Now the latest posts can be accessed. That will make it easier to dust off archive rust.

I'm still suffering from a bit of writer's block. Nothing's really inspiring me to post new stuff. And I have to take care of real life concerns before jumping back into the fray.

By the way, those deleted entries can still be found through google cache. Just search and add the ex-con's name. Though I'm sure he'll try to get those erased too. The truth hurts.

I almost got that top Margo Channing quote wrong. Like many, I thought Bette's line was bumpy ride not night. According to this link, that is one of the seven most misquoted movie lines of all time.

By the time Irene made it to Massachusetts, it was downgraded to a tropical storm. Where I am, the winds were strong but there wasn't as much rain as I thought there'd be. The best moment was going out for a walk to check it out. A bunny had been sheltering itself below an eave. I saw a few wires and a store sign down, but otherwise it was a non-event personally.
