This weekend I was planning on putting a few entries in the blog when suddenly, and without warning my screen went black and my monitor began making a sound like my neighbors car in the dead of winter when they start it up and let it heat up a bit in the morning. What is that sound anyway? It has a staccato quality and I always kind of thought it was a slipping belt, but what do I know. Anyhow…that is the sound that was coming out of the back of my monitor.
Because of this sudden inconvenience I will need to pick up a new (bigger) monitor tonight on the way home and because of the unplanned expenditure, I will be pushing back my pledge to PBS a few weeks. Yes, this year I resolved to support the things I believe in like PBS, NPR, and the ACLU. If I had to say one positive thing about the detestable Bush Administration it is that they have manged to prod me out of my complacency. It is about time something did.
