Good morning

I haven’t had a self-indulging post for a couple of days, so you get one this morning. 😉 Oh, it won’t be that bad. Keep reading.

First, if you happen to be a fellow blogger, take a moment and read this. Vision is important in what we do. I really liked the question, “how do you want your readers to feel?” That answer came to me immediately. Part of it is probably my personal weakness, but when you finish reading something from Fairly Conservative I want you to feel smarter than the other guys. I want you to have more clear information, a broader perspective, a more genuine understanding of the subject. It doesn’t always happen, but I think it’s okay to let you in on the secret goal.

Indulgence number two: I’m leaving the country again. Generally I don’t mention travel until it’s over, but we’ve buttoned down the house rather tightly recently and I’m not as concerned these days. Plus, it’s starting to be crunch time in the Republican primary and I don’t want you to think I didn’t care! Oh, and when I get home I turn around and take Mom for a week in Charleston, South Carolina for her birthday.

In other words, I’m out of here for the rest of March. I will do my best to check in here and there, but I can’t make promises. FC blogging buddies help me out! And, if you happen to want to make a guest post of some kind, let me know by email. I’d be happy to pop it up for you. Might be a great time to test out your own vision.

Happy Monday. I gotta pack!


  1. I predict that by the time you get back, Romney will have effectively sewn up the GOP primary, Limbaugh will have lost a few radio station syndicates, and Obama will be hovering right around 50% approval. 2012 is shaping up to be a good year for Democrats, and it’s all because of the GOP’s lack of a coherent and rational philosophy.

  2. You mean people are actually supposed to READ what I write?! Oh! My stars and.. wait.. I don’t wear garters, so I can’t say that. sorry;-) Have a nice time!

    Buen viaje !

  4. Billiam. Yes, occasionally one hopes to be read.

    KPOM – I know! I was so optimistic a couple of months ago, but darn if the GOP hasn’t turned into a group of collective squirrel chasers. Not sure what to expect now.
