No column this week
I find myself intellectually removed and stunningly bored with this place right now. I just don't have anything at all to say, so I didn't even write a column this week. I don't want to milk it with fluff under my name in the hopes that this will pass. The old me would probably write about the Hocog Initiative this week and give a well deserved blast to Stanley Torres, but I don't even have the stomach for the BS that would follow that right now with my first baby due in two weeks and my general indifference of late to the daily nonsense. This place seems just so hopelessly screwed up, and I don't want to depress myself and others by bitching about it. The story tonight on KSPN about these nitwits not being able to pay for this month's gas at the power plant is absurd, and that's with near daily power outages and sometimes multiple outages. Beyond that, my health was bad during Spring Break and is still not great, and I didn't do a damn thing interesting in my time off. Cynthia is very big and extremely uncomfortable in these last two weeks, so I worry and try to help her, and I still feel a bit of the hangover from Shelby's death. She was usually able to cheer me up. Saipan has been very good to me, but it feels like I've been here long enough and I'm ready for something new.
