Readers- For more than 24 hours, the entire nationwide Blogger/Blogspot service has been broken, busted, hosed, FUBAR, and generally as screwed up and dysfunctional as Washington DC.
Which probably is completely unrelated to the Obama administration's announcement yesterday of their new "cyber policies" to control the Internet and content of the kind you're reading right now. And you should certainly feel confident that the systemic breakdown of Blogger had nothing to do with adding any new "personal monitoring" algorithms to the software. Gulp.
Anyway, for the past day I've been pulling my hair out (not that I've got any to spare) trying to post ANYTHING - a cartoon, a commentary, a word of explanation, or a message for "help" in a bottle. But nooOOooo. And currently, it looks like yesterday's cartoon and comments have disappeared. Will they be back, or are they being harshly interrogated at Guantanamo? It's too soon to know, and Obama refuses to share the photographic proof he claims to have.
Anyway, I just want readers to know that the black helicopters didn't come for me, I didn't walk away from the job, nor did George Soros offer me enough money to shut up although he should certainly keep trying. And assuming that Blogger can keep from crashing, I'll have a brand NEW cartoon up tomorrow instead of something from the vault.
So thank you for your patience and understanding, and please know - in all seriousness - that barring a true emergency I will always be here for you...because it genuinely means so much that you're all here for me. -Stilt
