Every now and then people ask me what makes me decide what to blog about, and my usual reply is that I go for topics that raise my blood pressure. Things like Global Warming and attacks on Christianity and stupid bureaucrat tricks.
Of course, the blood pressure test doesn't apply to weird animal news or cool science, which call to me like crack cocaine to an addict (or so I hear). Same thing with public service announcements.
In the last month or two, however, my blood pressure has remained pretty low, newswise. Senator Barack Obama's revelation that he thinks middle America is bitter and clingy didn't stir me. Senator Hillary Clinton's earlier lies about taking sniper fire didn't either.
I'm not sure what's going on to make me more calm than usual. Maybe just that I'm not in the middle of a stressful job, and I'm not driving a motorhome in traffic. But the end result is that my blogging has been light because I've stayed peaceful when I've read the news in between hunting for and applying for jobs. Strange...
