Bloviating Zeppelin: Away

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Dearest Readers:

I just received a phone call from my wife, who indicated she was the recipient of a phone call from her brother. Her brother was told by a hospice nurse that my wife's mother has perhaps a day or two left. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer roughly a month ago. After drafting this post and sending it, I'll be packing and leaving within the hour.

I don't know how long I'll be away, quite frankly. It could be a few days, it could be a week. But at this point family trumps blogging. Please keep my wife's family in your prayers.

As I've written when leaving for a bit: never fail to tell those you love how you feel about them.

Please keep you and yours safe and healthy.

Sorry to hear about this. I've lost a mother, step-mother and mother-in-law to cancer. I wish they'd find a cure for it!

Have a safe trip, BZ. I know you will be a tremendous comfort to your wife.

Many blessings.
