A Death Leads to a Rebirth
Source: A Death Leads to a Rebirth
I believe it was Mark Twain that wrote, “Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.” And, I am happy to say, the same can be said for me.
My computer, on the other hand, has achieved “door nail” status.
Thankfully, I have been around to hear the rumors that I faded away as a blogger; to those who spread such rumors, I say poppycock (and wishful thinking)! I am still alive and well, and ready/willing/able to dish out information to my dear readers.
My old computer, I am sad to say, went to sleep and never woke up. I am thankful that its passing was peaceful, but—regrettably—it left no last will and testament that provided instructions on how to carry on in its absence. This meant that I had to start from scratch (which included a lot of head scratching) by finding a new computer system and transfer all of the “stuff” (technical term for computer files) to my new system.
Funny how choosing a computer is almost like choosing a mate. You want to make sure that you’re compatible and can work together well, and you surely check out those sleek little features that are appealing to the eyes/hands.
Today, I am happy to report, the new system is—as Clark Kent once said—“faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings with a single bound,” and all that jazz.
So now, to quote another famous American—a general with a big hat, sunglasses, and pipe named MacArthur—“I shall return!”
In the coming weeks, there will be a lot to blog about since the county continues to be mired in muck. As I have shown in the past, I am not afraid of muck—in fact, I embrace it and focus on it with an unrelenting thirst for the truth. (Kind of reminds me of an old TV show about truth and consequences.)
Over the next few days, I will continue to load my weapon—um, I mean system—with all the data goodies it can hold while I start licking my chops (so to speak) in preparation of taking on the dastardly deeds of those who perpetrate such dastardly deeds.
Time for one final old saying (the last for this blog, I promise): the truth will set you free … unless it doesn’t, as may be the case in some instances.
After this extended break, I’m going to be churning out some real gems. Let me just advise those that don’t particularly care for my blogs that it may be in order to stock up on a famous pink liquid (Pepto Bismol).
If that doesn’t work, maybe you should try Tums. (Wink, nod, smile.)
In the meanwhile, I’ll finish getting loaded (with data, of course) and continue to prepare my documents that will expose some rather interesting unresolved issues in our beloved county. Remember, dear readers, that the Watergate scandal did not break wide open after just one article in the Post; it was the persistence of Wood/Stein (Woodward and Bernstein) that eventually led to the dam bursting, taking some very prominent names down with the floodwaters.
