It’s that time of year again here at The Institute, Christmas time, when we send out our roving reporters to find out what the flora and fauna are doing over the holidays. This year we find that we don’t have any roving reporters to send out and rove because the reporters we sent roving last year haven’t come back yet. We thought at least a couple of them would make it back and although it’s only been a year, I’m beginning to think we may have lost them. You know what that means. The Director, in the form of yours truly, will have to go in their place and do a job of work.
I know there was a lot of discontent amongst the troops after the Pulitzers were given out this year and we were ignored yet AGAIN! by the establishment press but that’s no reason to not only go AWOL, but to stay that way. That’ s like AWOL and a half, or AWOL². But as they say in show business, damn it to hell those rat bast…, I mean, the Blog must go on, and so it will. It may be a little more disjointed than usual, perhaps some days where there won’t be any posting at all, but one way or the other we’ll try our mediocre best.
Because I’m going to have to go out and actually work that means I won’t be here to wish you all the very Merriest of Christmas’s and the Happiest of New Years. The plan is to be back right after the 1st of the year but that depends on whether or not any trouble happens, and since we don’t seem to be able to walk across the street without trouble happening that may be a crap shoot. But we’ll try.
So again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Sincerely, The Director.
