Here’s the Thing

By lex, on October 9th, 2011

The thing about flying for a living?

Is that it doesn’t, when the press is on, leave a whole lot of time for other things. You can’t phone one in from the only seat in the Kfir. As yet.

I’ve got a couple of good posts floating around inside the cranium. Just need the time to liberate them.

Until then, talk amongst yourselves.

Traveling Man

By lex, on July 13th, 2011

Which your host is on the road for the next cuppla, and will be mostly off the grid, leaving the keys in it for your use and don’t make me come down there.

As a discussion sparker, I’d like to leave you with a few things:

Stop the clock

Posted by Lex, on August 26, 2006

 

Game over.

The competition for world’s most cretinously immoral blogger is officially at an end. Over on the HuffPo (why am I not surprised), one Russell Shaw takes on – purely as a mental exercise, you see – the weighty task of wondering whether or not another terrorist attack on the US homeland would or would not be of net benefit to American society. That benefit, payable in “n” number of American lives lost, would redound to Mr. Shaw’s preferred political party, and thence to the rests of us, the lumpen red state masses otherwise too ignorantly self-absorbed in NASCAR to make the same kinds of choices Mr. Shaw and his friends would like for us.

Admin Notes

By lex, on April 7th, 2010

Your host is decamping for parts east over the next several. A vacation, like. Spring Break, and so on. He has every intention of going sinker over the intervening period.

You are cordially invited to talk amongst yourselves.

With the following important caveat:

A Letter to My Shipmates

By lex, on November 4th, 2009

Some of you remember that I spent a day at sea with some cutting edge folks on the blog, tech and information world. I wrote them a little email today that I thought I’d share with you.

I hope you don’t mind.

Yes

Posted by Lex, on November 5, 2007

Yes, this is one of those days.

 

Update: I didn’t have the heart nor the time to tilt at HuffPo windmills during my leave o’ absence. Fortunately for all of us, Noonan was not so constrained.

I think there was a tacit presumption all the way around that one of the market advantages of blogging was that the writer, having to actually write things down – as opposed to beerily barking at passersby from a dimly lit barstool somewhere – would be held accountable for the things that  he’d, you know: Written. And that such accountability would necessarily force him to do some research if the field he was wandering onto was not an area of special expertise.

Not so much.

Thanga

Posted by Lex, on August 16, 2006

 

A hearty Elvis “Thanga ver much” to RL from Huntington Beach who threw a generous wad at the tip jar, saying it was for “Hours of laughter, memories and mental stimulation.”

While not disagreeing, while never disagreeing with a happy customer, I will point out that it’s actually for the replacement bike frame.

Just so we’re clear on that

Update: Good readership! Thanks too to RC from Sykesville, Maryland, whose contribution for “his part of the hall” puts that new frame just a little closer to being in reach. Thanks again!
