Earlier this week, I announced that I would not be running for Republican nominee for President of the United States. Today, I announced I would also not be running for Democratic nominee. I know you're disappointed. I've spelled out my reasoning here:

I think the folks in Alabama have convinced me. No in-state tuition for children of illegal aliens. Here's my thinking:

Interesting. When I google my name one day, I get over 50,000 results. Two days later, I get less than 14,000. I wonder why that is, and I wonder if it matters.

I find myself sympathizing with the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Sometimes I feel like a 19th century guy. I want to be hip, and cool, and with it, but it seems like most people use Twitter, and FB and G+. to promote themselves. Others to promote a cause. Others to blather and repeat what others say. I can promote, and blather pretty well and I like my causes, but I confess I'm having trouble sorting it all out and making sense of it. It seems like much of it is a waste of time. I'd rather read a good book. Is it just me?

Jeremy- It's the triviality of most of the conversation. I decide to "follow" a handful of tweeters or plusers, and get bombarded with goofy nonsense. I try to sort through them, select people to follow more carefully, or people to include in my "circles" and mostly I'm just not interested in the little things they have to say. I'm no better, I can't imagine anyone wanting to listen to me rant. But I'm an author, we're "supposed" to maintain a presence. So yes, it applies to my blog as well. When I write something significant, it reaches a tiny number of folks. So I write something funny, I get more hits. But then, if I don't have anything worth saying for a week and my "audience" disappears. The quantity versus quality thing, that's my issue. But so many people participate, if feels like maybe I need to take a class so I figure out how to reap benefit.

My iMac was doing some goofy scrolling. I ran Disk Warrior, ran Disk Utilites, cleaned my mouse, repaired preferences, rebuilt my directory and everything else a long time Mac guy would do, but nothing worked. Took it into these guys. They diagnosed the problem as a fried mouse that was sending bad signals to the computer. They could have given me a complicated explanation and charged me a lot, but they didn't. They just said, your mouse is fried, no charge. I bought a new mouse on the way home for 15 bucks and it works fine now. Anyone who identifies the problem quickly and correctly and for free deserves extra credit. i'll use them again and would recommend them to you as well.
