In the home stretch
After 310 posts and a solid year of regular blogging, I'm starting to feel like I've said most everything I want to say about Saipan -- especially its peculiar political aspects. My guess is that other than my Variety column, which will be posted Tuesday nights and will increasingly be the "Conversation With" series, as meeting and talking with some interesting people and bringing out their voices are the things I'm enjoying doing now, there won't be much else on this blog, which much like my time on this island, is mostly likely heading toward its complete finale. I'm six weeks from a newborn, about to engage in a book project and I've been making a daily study of comedy and comedians with the goal of putting together an act, as that seems to be the only avenue people can really say what they want to say. These things will be taking up my time. I don't expect this blog to be completely dead, but I won't be devoting nearly as much time to it.
