Abandon Text!

W. H. Auden once said: "Poems are not finished; they are abandoned." I have been abandoning writing projects for many years, since only the pressure of deadline and high expectations ever got me to finish, or even start, anything of merit. This blog is an attempt to create a more consistent, self-directed writing habit. Hopefully a direction and voice will emerge.

August Surprise

Looks like the English plane bombing plot was exposed a couple days too late to help Joe Lieberman. There's nothing like a good, disruptive terrorist scare to blunt public outcry against the hawks. (Not that that makes sense, logically, since the war in Iraq really has nothing to do with the war on terror, but it doesn't have to make sense to work.)

But maybe its not too late after all, since it looks like Joe understands how to play scare tactics as well as his fellow hawks on the other side of the aisle.
