Feeling much better now. Thanks to all who sent “Feel Better” messages via email. I actually felt quite a bit better by yesterday, but still kept a low profile due to my self-imposed 9/11 Media Blackout. I wasn’t interested in seeing any further politicization of that horrible event, or any of the TragiPorn that has sprung up around it (Hey, kids! It’s the anniversary! Let’s show grainy close-up video of people swan-diving out of the WTC windows!).
So, naturally, just when I decide to emerge from Media Blackout, the first thing I find out is that both John Ritter and Johnny Cash have died.
