Noticed I've had some exotic readers.
I hope there's no author that feels maligned in any way by something I've written. I'm not vain enough to consider that what I write in my interest is also necessarily in the interest of the public, the blog is more for me than everyone 'out there' in other words.
And I do like the rhetorical flair, because much of the world, and writing, is boring to me - boring levels hi - though I don't wish to reveal the intentions behind everything written, I retain the right to be mysterious.
In general, the dog's bark is worse than the bite.
