A bunch of the 170 are still in the queue. I haven’t been adding to the scheduled posts for awhile, instead I’ve been inserting topical items from time to time—I even got some vicious hate mail for my article on the electoral college—and then I’ve been shoving material for new posts into a big file that now has a couple hundred items, I’m not quite sure what to do with that one, maybe I’ll write all my posts for 2017 on a single day and get that over with? Also, sometimes our co-bloggers post here, and that’s cool.
Anyway, three people emailed me today about a much-publicized science news item that pissed them off. It’s not really topical but maybe I’ll post on it, just to air the issue out. And I have a couple literary ideas I wanted to share. So maybe I’ll do something I haven’t done for a few months, and bump a few of this week’s posts to the end of the queue.
Before that, though, I have a post that is truly topical and yet will never be urgent. I’ll schedule it to appear in the usual slot, between 9 and 10 in the morning.
