A Quick Post
According to the site meter I installed the other day, I have real, live, regular readers from all over the world! I am astounded! So I apologize to all of you today for the total lack of posting. I live in a developing nation. We have many modern conveniences, but we are still part of the Developing World. When it rains heavily, which happens daily in November, my DSL connection at the church goes out. It has been out all day, so I have been unable to post. Plus, once I got home, I worked with my friend Eric Jackson of the Panama News as he raided my record and cd collection for music for his new podcast, “Wappin.” That took most of the afternoon, so that's why I haven’t posted today.
I am very happy about the results of the election in the U.S. It appears that the Democratic Party has gained both the House and the Senate. This is the first election since I moved to Panama in which I didn’t wonder about the sanity of my fellow countrypersons. Now there may be a chance for the U.S. to actually recover some credibility here in the Real World. And I just learned that Mr.Rumsfeld resigned or was given the old boot. If the U.S. is serious about gaining credibility once again, they will get the Vice President to resign, or, even better, shackle him and let him languish in caves of methane ice beneath the White House. I have always voted Democratic because Sandinistas can’t vote in the primaries. Speaking of Sandinistas, Daniel Ortega won the election in Nicaragua. So, Nicaragua, Brasil, and the U.S. have not gone Dubya’s way. Thanks be to God!!
I’ll try to post tomorrow, but I can’t guarantee anything. Perhaps the telephone situation will be repaired, but if there is no change, I won’t be able to post, as I have a long day tomorrow with a funeral AND a Vestry meeting. I’m still deciding whether I will share with you my experience of purchasing extremely fresh poultry this afternoon, but I may lose all my readers!
Thank you for your support.
I See You!
