So, Just Exactly Where HAVE I Been Recently?

Some of you know that I have some life-altering, but not at all life-threatening, chronic health problems that generally don’t keep me from doing the things that I need to do — including blog frequently on issues that matter to me. For the last month, though, I’ve had a flareup that hit its apex over the last 10 days or so, and both it and the treatment for it kept me out of the blogosphere and nicely ensconced in the doctor-ordered pajamasphere. Which, while keeping people from sniping at me and all, is ultimately quite boring. You can only watch so much “MonsterQuest” before you begin to think the dude you went to the prom with in ’78 might, in fact, have been the mythical Chupacabra. It’s been a long week and a half, but I’m getting better.

So let’s agree to meet here again in just a couple of days. We’ve got a lot to cover: The sinful Islamophobia flooding into and spewing from the Church, a local move to make Idaho a medicinal marijuana state, the likelihood that Latah County’s Democratic Party will ignore Gresham Bouma by dismissing him, rather stupidly, as just another “right-wing, fighting fundy,” and lots of neat stuff emanating from the pastoral blog whose name is a kicky little play on the Bible’s archetypical, eschatological king and kingdom allied against God.

Give me just a bit of time, and Prevailing Winds will blow out of Moscow once again. Thanks for your patience and your prayers, although I’d rather not hear your contention, however earnest, that you’ve personally encountered the Chupacabra.
