that beginning tomorrow you will probably not see that much of me around here, until perhaps Sunday Sept 30.
Tomorrow at 6 AM I get in my car and begin a 1600 mile drive to Ames IA where I will arrive in the afternoon on Wednesday, to begin volunteering in the campaign of Christie Vilsack in the 4th Congressional District of Iowa, against the noxious - and obnoxious - Steve King. This is a winnable seat, Christie is a friend, and as a retired person I do have some time on my hands, and I can think of nothing more constructive I can do.
I will leave on Friday the 28th to return home.
Until I get back, while I will check in from time to time when I can, I probably will neither be posting nor commenting as much as is my normal practice.
Did not want people to worry about me, either as to my health or whether I had been autobanned or simply decided to fade away.
