I've got a number of things in the works. I'm amazed at the number of unpublished drafts I've built up lately.
Among the things slowing me down was a touch of the flu and reading Neil Gaiman's "American Gods." I thought the novel was only OK, though Gaiman admittedly wowed me on several occasions with nifty turns of phrase. And I liked especially the serial murder subplot resolved very late in the book. Inspired in part by Gaiman, I hereby share about one of my flu symptoms: I've been coughing a bit, but other than a burning in the throat afterward it's not all that uncomfortable. Each cough was a bit like throwing back a shot of phlegm-flavored vodka.
Next up, I think, a grading of PolitiFact and Chris Matthews.
