For those who have kept an eye on this blog ever since I "went dark" back in June, your patience was rewarded, but I suppose some explanation as to why I have chosen to return to the News posts after swearing them off is in order.
First, it was the best way I had to stay up to date. As much as I appreciate the kind words of everyone who thanked me for the information, I was just as much a beneficiary as you were. The late Stephen Ambrose once wrote that the act of writing is the act of learning; I experienced that with every post (including the most recent one).
Secondly, I realized as time went on that posting was not as difficult as I had originally feared. It was the rest of what I usually did (speeches, meetings, etc.) that just took up way too much of my time and my family's time. I especially noticed this as I got more involved with my other blogs.
Finally, the more I thought about it, the more I realized I could still do some good by spreading the word on the Communists and their nefarious, anti-American objectives.
Now, I doubt I'll be posting every day, but I can say that I will be posting "infinitely often" (to coin a phrase I learned in graduate school), with the "News of the . . ." format and all the information I can cram into them.
In other words . . .
I . . . am . . . back.
