A New Day, A New Way

I miss "Rip and Read", I miss writing in it, and I miss reading so that I can write in it...but the fact is, I've just been do damn busy to do the reading necessary to keep up with the news enough to feel worthy of offering even so much as a partially intelligent comment on it.

Plus, after all while, what else is there to say about the Bush Administration? What opinion can be offered that hasn't been offered by others more qualified?

I've found myself envying my blogging friends who don't limit themselves to one topic, but who, instead cover many, all, or none.

So...as of today, while Rip and Read will remain MOSTLY a political blog, it will no longer confine itself exclusively to those areas.

See You Later Alligator

While I am fully aware that it is not nice to tamper with Mother Nature, there WAS something about the knowledge there was a wily Florida Alligator loose in a California lake, evading the best efforts of police and rangers to capture him, that made me really happy.
However, Reggie was finally captured and incarcerated, comfortably, to be sure. But his Robin Hood like existence has come to an end. Happy Trails, Reggie.
