September 12, 2006

And the day after.

A couple of you asked the significance of the blank post yesterday. As I've mentioned in years past, I never quite know the best way to commemorate September 11. I had several graphical things lined up to try, but in the end, I figured in the case of this blog, absence would be more noticeable than anything else.

This place is full to overflow with my thoughts--a continuing stream of thoughts both serious and silly--about everything that crosses my path. At some point in there, the serious gets overwhelmed by the banal, and I just think there would have been few things I could have posted that would have added in any substantive way to what other people have done or said.

So for once, I just shut up.

But should you care what my thoughts are, they are simple.

No quarter.

Thanks for the elaboration: I THOUGHT that might have been your intent, and sometimes silence *is* a good tribute.

Yup. I knew what it meant.

Sorry to hear about the ongoing tooth ouchies.

BTW, the elderly Volvo needs a "Give Peace A Chance" bumper sticker. (So does the Honda, come to think about it.) I've already ordered mine, you need a handful too.

I'm looking for one that says that, and has a picture of a Swede Mauser M-41B below it.
