This blogger has, in his nine years on this blog, rarely missed days of entries, particularly in the last few years.
But now, everyone in Florida is threatened by the worst hurricane in American history, Hurricane Irma, with winds of 185 miles per hour, Category 5 churning out in the Atlantic Ocean, and I am doing what I can to protect my home, family, and possessions.
It has been busy getting prepared, and I am no longer able to focus on the constant flow of events.
So I am signing off now until at some point in the future, when electric has been restored, with some predictions that it will take weeks to restore the situation, and hopefully, without harm to property and life.
I wish everyone in the hurricane path, not only in Florida, but elsewhere up the Atlantic Coast, the best of fortune and safety.
This is a very emotional time, and I hope and expect I will be back on this website soon.
In any case, the fight for the American future must go on, to insure the basic principles of the American experience–liberty, equality, and justice!
