Back and out of the loop...
I just returned from my occupation-induced exile and I promise that the blog will become active just as soon as I'm up-to-date on current events. I see that Dan, Flash, and Bri did not in fact pick up the slack during my absence so I do apologize.
I would love to post something deep and meaningful or light and funny or indeed something even remotely interesting, but as I said I am completely and utterly out of the loop, so if I am ever capable of writing anything useful, this is not the time. Going out on a ship far enough from shore that there is no radio or television and only infrequent emails and sat-phone calls home will do that. In many ways it is like being AFK, but more. More like Absent From Life, regular life, anyway. I highly recommend it for everyone. It is spiritually refreshing, but hell on the blog.
Question for the crowd - Is it possible to be a spiritual atheist? I might have thought that to be an oxymoron, but I don't think I do anymore.
Anyway, kevout for now, but I'll see you around the blogosphere as I go around asking dumb questions like why exactly does the Pope want to join W and begin a crusade?
