. . . not just a long time, actually: It's been a
of a long time since my last post, due mostly to conferences and speeches the past few weeks at the Maguire Center for Ethics
, combined with some speechifying of my own, on top of teaching, cranking out a new poetry column for the Dallas Morning News
(scheduled for this Sunday's paper), and a few other official chores PLUS
(arthroscopic surgery on a torn medial meniscus
) . . . .okay, okay -- too much information. Well, I'm back, at least until we leave for Paris to visit #3 son (with #2 son in tow) next week, which means this page will be down for about 5 days starting
Nov. 23. For now -- For a day or two, I'll be playing a little catch-up ball to get through the backlog of interesting or useful (and in some case, useful and
interesting) stuff. Stay tuned . . . .
