No more bad news

by Michael Alderete on 8/4/2002

In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve been posting a lot fewer political items here. It’s not because I think things are looking up, but because I think they’re looking worse and worse. I decided that trying to keep up would (a) be a lost cause, and (b) make this blog terribly boring (not that it isn’t anyway).

I am still cataloging the various signs of the apocolypse, in a separate blog that’s mostly a collection of story links and summaries. I call it The Decline and Fall of the American Empire, because I think there are clear signs that America is going to hell in a handbasket, but like frogs in a pot of water, if the heat is brought up gradually, no one will cry out until it’s too late.

At least, that’s my opinion. And as far as I understand the current laws of the United States, I’m still entitled to it.

We’ll see how long that lasts.
Decline of the American Empire
