It happens all too often. I see an article that catches my interest, and I think, Oh, I’ll write some remarks about that. It’ll just take a few minutes.
And then I begin. And I find I need to look up a couple of things. Just one or two. And those lead to a couple more, and I become curious about another thing, and before I know it I’ve spent a great deal more time than I originally expected to on the blasted post.
In fact, it readily becomes apparent that, to say everything I’d like to say, and back up my reasons for saying it, I’d have to write a lengthy article or even a book. Hey, maybe several books.
And so I stop, slap the post up there, and go on with my life. Case in point: today’s effort. It’s the tiny tip of a very large iceberg.
