The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." "...it is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32) akakyakakyevich@gmail.com

A WORD FROM THE OWNER AND MANAGER OF THIS BLOG: My apologies for not posting anything this past week, but I figured four long posts last Saturday would cover the demand for the week. I know I should post more often, but life, as is its wont, gets in the way, and I am not the fastest writer in the world to begin with. I wish I could get away with doing what Professor Reynolds does; he dashes off a sentence and a link and everyone is happy. Unfortunately, the nature of The Passing Parade doesn’t let me get away with such an easy way of avoiding pencil and paper; this is an essay blog, and the only way you have an essay blog is to write essays, which is pretty damn frustrating, all in all. I am working on a couple of things now—the tank is not dry; I have any number of ideas for posts—I just don’t have the time to write them at the moment. But I will get to it. In any case, I’d like to thank Snoop over at SimplyJews for the sudden uptick in my daily traffic; a comment I made over there has become the most popular thing I’ve written since Kim du Toit linked to that piece I did about the origins of Christmas. I’ve even seen that comment quoted without my nom de blog on it, so I guess I should be happy; I’ve become a minor meme of sorts. Still, it would be nice to just link to stuff and put in a sentence or two and then have everyone read it; life would be so much easier. Heh. Indeed.
