Five years later

It only took five years and a fatal disease scare to get me to update the site. Kris, you can stop fussing about this now.

The blog will be my primary way to keep people updated on health issues, the cat’s health issues and all the rest of the things that periodically necessitate talking to a dozen or so people about something. (Yes, at least that many people are interested in the affairs of furry spinster Motley Sue. Go figure.)

Really opinionated stuff most likely won’t show up here, simply because it would be A Bad Thing for the people I cover in Hesperia to feel like they could see my personal biases slipping into my work at the paper. A few already do think they see it, but since I’ve done my best to be a blank slate, what they see tends to be cancelled out by what other people see, and over time, most people who care about such things have grudgingly accepted that I’m trying to be fair all around. Coming out as a staunch believer in X, Y or Z would make that a lot more precarious.

I will have opinions about other stuff, but fair warning up front, it won’t be heavy duty “Economist“-inspired discussions of world issues, but more along the lines of what I felt about the last book I read (“Monstrous Regiment” by Terry Pratchett, amazingly good) and such.

I will slowly be strip-mining and then closing the old Secret Identity and Wandering Star sites, incorporating that content into the new set-up. Where appropriate, I’ll actually be backfilling in the blog with dated entries, so don’t be surprised to see past months and years fill up with entries, much like the sarcoidosis-related mass e-mails below have appeared, months before the blog actually opened.

Oh, and if you miss the old classic front page, I liked it too, in all its simplicity. A stripped-down version that just points to the sites that still exist can be found here.

Talk to you soon.

  1. Would you consider taking the old “LBY3” animated GIF and (possibly shrinking it) include it in either your header / a side banner / or footer placement?

    It’s just too cute to lose.
