So I was thinking about why I haven’t blogging much lately (and why when I have it’s not been particularly substantial). I’m not really much busier, though blogging tends be lower priority than the various other ways I spend my free time these days.
The real reason is this: I have no clue about most of what’s going on. Yes, I could mock religious fundamentalists or random conservative stupidity, but it seems silly right now. I have opinions about the economy, but no confidence in them and little ability to discuss them in-depth. Current policy in Iraq and Afghanistan? I guess Iraq is going in the right direction and I’m increasingly dubious about whether there’s anything to accomplish there and if it’s even possible to accomplish that. Obama in general has been alright, but I’m not sure if I’d say he’s doing well. Still too early to tell, anyway.
So there you go. Navel-gazing is all I have left.
