A quick personal note

By Matthew Hoy on September 13, 2012

Posting has been sporadic lately largely for two reasons:

First, I've suffered a relatively minor recurrence of sciatica that first hit me about 5 years ago. So, I'm currently in a reasonable amount of pain which makes it difficult to summon the necessary energy and moral outrage to blog.

Second, I've taken a part time gig that I might reveal more about later. It is political/internet/journalism related and also has the side effect of acting as an outlet for some of the aforementioned energy and moral outrage.

Hopefully, an improvement in my physical well-being will result in increased blogging in coming weeks.

  1. Matthew,

    I hope you feel better soon. Sciatica cannot be any fun I am sure. Good luck on the part-time gig.

  2. Matt, I feel your pain. Get well soon and best of luck with the new gig, I am looking forward to hear all about it.

  3. I have known a few people who suffered mightily with sciatica; I hope it ends soon, if it has not already done so.

    All the best on the new stuff!


In a just world, SB 918 and its New York counterpart would make the Supreme Court* say: "well, we tried to let you keep shall issue, but you morons just couldn't help yourselves, so now constitutional carry is the law of the land".

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.

New talking points just dropped in WaPo -- if that's the excuse for the raid, how does the FBI also justify letting Clinton skate when she also had docs "classified at the highest classification level"? https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2022/08/11/garland-trump-mar-a-lago/?tid=ss_tw

The most dramatic consequences of government intervention occurred in Sri Lanka, where a 2021 fertilizer ban led to a massive reduction in yields, sparking starvation and an economic crisis that brought down the government in July.
