I would like to thank Paul Cella for inviting me to be a contributor to What's Wrong with the World.
I wish I could tell you precisely why I am doing this. I guess I'm just tired. Between professional writing, teaching, speaking, and blogging there's little time left for the most important things in life. The last several entries I posted have been deleted, precisely because they were not my best work and I want you to remember me fondly.
I must confess that some of the comments on my last entry really stung, mostly because they asserted claims about my inner life that are so obviously false that I could not bear to read them anymore. I know it is difficult for some of you to believe, but I am a person with real feelings, who is sometimes compelled, though not pleased with, trying to out-clever the other guy. If that seems like a sign of weakness to some of you, so be it. I'd rather be happy than "right." After I wrote my last comment on my last entry, I thought to myself, "Enough."
Blessings to you and yours.
