As stated previously,
I resolved to post this boilerplate text by way of
explanation on days where my work on other writing
projects keeps me from generating fresh material
for this column.
For my handful of daily readers, this might
entail an occasional disappointment, similar
perhaps to what one might feel when turning on a
favorite TV program, only to find a previous
episode being rerun. Generally, I enjoy using this
forum to opine on a daily basis, so I will continue
to offer up fresh opinions just about every day.
But, as I've stated before, this column has always
been intended as the means, not the end, to get me
to write on a daily basis. Thus, by its very
nature, it necessarily must take a back seat to any
other writing I may do.
This may seem like a long-winded and largely
unnecessary explanation, considering the majority
of visitors to this daily column are not daily
readers. But the explanation is as much a
justification to myself as to my readership. I made
a promise to write every day of this year, and I
don't intend to break that vow (I should now say I
"didn't" intend, since I've already done so a
couple of times). If you read a "repeat" of this
article on subsequent days, rest assured I'm
writing elsewherehopefully something that
you'll be able to read in print somewhere else.
