      • To both Robert and Noel, thank you for asking. Lots going on in my life right now — a result of living in the worst part of the country, the worst state, and among extreme fundamentalists and corrupt politicians. Mississippi politicians/legislators are the most corrupt in the country. Now they want to make the Bible the state book.

        If I survive, I plan on doing a post sometime, when the dust settles. I’m having major surgery next week, will be in the hospital for a week, so I’ll be offline for a while.

      • I’m so sorry to hear that, Victoria. My very best wishes to you. Please try to stay in touch. We care about you deeply. You’re one of those rare human beings this effed-up world cannot do without. Sincerely, Bob.
