Holy Moly! I haven’t blogged here since August? The place is getting dusty with neglect. I pledge to do better (get it? Dusty? Pledge?)

I HAVE been writing, and I have been writing in online spaces…just not here.

(I wonder if Melanie has surpassed by blog count?)
One place I spend some of my reading and commenting time is a political blog, Swampbubbles, where I posted a narrative about a day in class when students asked me to reveal who I was voting for in the presidential election.

This became a hot discussion at that political board, was read aloud on a local radio talk show and was the focus of the discussion.
