...I've called you all here.
I will begin by admitting it was done under false pretenses.
I'm not going to write a damn thing about what I'm thinking. I've tried, believe me; I've deleted three entries before finishing them. And that was only in the last hour. I had a rich lineup of headliners: Nancy Pelosi, Anna Nicole Smith and astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak, plus a supporting cast of thousands.
Hundreds, anyway. Well, dozens....
To be precise, the entry that came closest to making it to completion mentioned four other names.
Instead, I have decided to mention no names tonight.
Nothing has changed, except that my understanding of what goes on around me has diminished, if that's possible. My view of humanity in general has, if possible, continued to worsen.
Those things are bad enough to dissuade me from saying anything.
