By Imperial and Royal decree, all of time from the advent at Galveston of Ike (of damnable memory) through the indefinite future (certainly including the balance of 2008) is to henceforth be known as the "Era of Suckage." Yes, there will be good days, bad days, sort of half-____ days. But all covered in the mire of suckage.
At least it seems that way. Don't know just what it is, but things have just not been normal since the lights went out. Hopefully the groove comes back, and we see normal around here again, someday.
