There's a good reason for the title of this post, and it's not just to find another reason to post this awesome song.
As we enter the last week of July, I find, well, not a lot of things worth writing about. I mean, of course, there are topics to write about. But to burn several hundred words' worth of electrons on any one issue? I don't know. And I guess I don't know because, are any of these issues on the radar, be they national, state or local, in anywhere near a completed state, or even a state of relative certainly that you're assured of the end product?
Take, for example, the just-completed Republican National Convention, as well as the Democratic National Convention that's just started. Does anyone really believe that the last words of the conventions have been said yet? Of course not! There was daily drama at the RNC and the DNC already portends more of the same. So to comment before next week would be uninformed at best and ignorant at worst.
And what about all these recent mass killings? Germany, Afghanistan, again in Florida, and now Japan? By bomb and by knife and by gun, oh my-- and where will it end? Does it end? Is there going to be some cataclysm at the Rio Olympics? If not one cast by the hand of terrorists, what about of unsafe conditions or public health? What about the entire doping drama? Have we heard the last of that? Somehow, I don't think so.
Locally, yes, the downtown Columbia debate rages onward, but is that going to resolve before September at the earliest? And likely not until October? That's what I see? And last Saturday, I received a message from a prominent former Rouse employee and commercial real estate broker, whose name everyone would recognize if I mentioned it, though very few would believe it. That person told me that Jen Terrasa needs to carry on her fight for a better downtown deal. This was a very high authority, but one that I trust and believe.
And does anyone really care who hocowatching is? I don't. I have two guesses, and I'm almost positive one is right. One of those guesses is a person on the right side of the spectrum and the other one, someone on the left. But their welcome and influence seems to have been exhausted already, so-- wow, that was a nice try, whoever thought that was a great idea.
So there will be bloggery this week, and next, I'm sure. But I don't feel right now like I need to post every day, only when I have something to say. If that's every few days, so be it. But, keep your eyes on the skies, True Believers! There's sure to be something coming down the pike soon that's gonna rock all of your worlds. Something unbelievable and wonderful and really cool!
Let's be careful out there.
