What to say?

I'm tongue-tied. Word-bound. Fuzz-brained.

World events seem, simultaneously, perilously close and impossibly distant. Palpably meaningful and totally facile. Organic and constructed. 

The audacity with which (almost exclusively) men in suits are playing with lives about which they know next to nothing is both frightening and fascinating. It bears no resemblance to reality yet is reality.

My nature is to believe in authenticity, but I'm finding it only in the worried looks of friends in unguarded moments.

So, I'm "going dark" for a few days. 

I need to let things coagulate. And get some rest. Watch this space. 'Bout a week?

K, no need to fret. The global peril was last Wed/Thu. Now, despite all the noise, it's just a matter of working out the details. ...But then again, I'm the label stuckee of "Peter Pan" by the ex- who didn't mean it as a compliment. Best, Brent

Okay, you've gone dark long enough. Please comment on the debate last night...dying for your thoughts.

Bought a new economy car two weeks ago amidst the ongoing CDS fiasco. ...What credit crisis? Best, Brent

But of course you did. This was a bailout for the "financial elite," after all!

"bailout" is mis-named/understood. It was a "main street buyout." Should be a good deal for us taxpayers over the next several years. Cheers! Brent
