a picture is worth several thousand words

As a quick addendum to my previous post about not supporting the troops, please enjoy the following:

*Special thanks to the amazing PostSecret blog for displaying this postcard. I don't know who made it and I used it without permission. Hope that's OK.

The silence in response to your "I don't support the troops" posts is deafening. I would comment, but I have too many mixed emotions about the issue to produce a coherent response. By the way, what's the happenings in the "a lot's been happening, most of it exciting" from your "quick update" post? I'm on pins and needles!

The silence is deafening, isn't it? I expected at least one piece of hate mail, either from a friend who was offended or from someone random who just happened upon the site. I don't know if I should be vexed or relieved that the shitstorm that I anticipated from these posts never materialized (so far only my Cindy Sheehan and "Goldbuggery" posts really did that).

And as for your pins and needles -- patience, my young Padawan! I'm thiiss close to being able to spill it. Here's a not so subtle hint -- we're not spawning; it's job related. I hope to be able to make an official announcement here by tomorrow night or over the weekend at the latest.

And thanks for commenting! I was going to put up one of those, "Is this thing on?" kind of posts. The comments have really dried up here, which I'm also ambivalent about -- either the blog is insufficiently challenging, offensive, or interesting to elicit comments, or everyone's too damn tired of my fevered anarchist rantings to reply anymore. At least I'm still having fun with it.

Anyway, like I said -- resolution to my "teaser" is coming soon!!!

Take care,
