I Have No Idea What Is Going On

24 Aug

If everything went according to plan, I am just now getting back from four days of near complete isolation from the outside world. I’m writing this the week before, and posting it for today’s edition for my weekly local/political column. Looking forward six days into the future, I probably smell bad, desparately need to change my underwear, am unshaven, have a thrown out back from sleeping on the ground, and am exhausted from paddling and camping with my sons.

I love stepping out of the hurly burly for brief periods. Anything could have happened. Did Obama start a new war? Did the Chinese make a surprise landing on the moon? Which hurricane formed and hit? Did Lloyd win the Food Network contest? Who did Alan fight with on Twitter? You know, the important stuff.

Being so out of it, what’s a writer to do?

Easy. First, slap up a classic meme.

Second, lay out a “deep thought.” Assuming the “campaign” is going as it had been, consider this: every day no one talks about the Collins/Poloncarz race, the closer Collins is to victory. Discuss.

(Author’s note: if the race blew up while I was gone, this will seem silly. But let’s see what happens.)

    I know how a long canoe trip can work up a serious appetite. So did you eat the rabbit or the pancakes (or both)–?

    Still waiting for moose pix!

    Poloncarz did well at his latest fundraiser, with all 3 Democratic Congress members there to back him. Don’t worry about the lack of discussion, after Labor Day people will start to gain interest. The Buffalo News is conspicuously absent in the discussion after Bob McCarthy’s hit job. For a paper that loves to mention Poloncarz’s lack of funds, you would think that they would publicize his most successful event to date.
