Today I thought that this post would be a quickie.
Merkel. Ban the veil. A little fisking of the Bloomberg editorial. Over and out.
About 1500 words and an hour and a half later I was disabused of that notion.
How does it happen? I don’t know whether all bloggers are this way, but I often start a post thinking it will take only a little while and find myself surfacing hours later, surprised at the time. As Frost said, “way leads on to way,” and a chain of thoughts lead to more thoughts and more research.
I’m not really complaining; not exactly, anyway. It’s probably one of the things I find most interesting about blogging—the unexpected discoveries and connections.
[ADDENDUM: Oh, and have you noticed that this blog is a Trump-post-free zone this weekend? If you’re having withdrawal symptoms, feel free to use this thread (or previous ones) to talk about him.]
