Hiatus



For those wondering where I am -- and really only one has, technically, at least here on the blog (bless you, Anonymous, truest of readers) -- I've gone to ground.

It says in the papers that I've been spotted in Costa Rica, either leading an army of mercenaries in my long-planned coup, or, drunk in mud hut. While I will neither confirm nor deny nor confirm these reports, the truth is a combination of other factors:


1) I'm writing again, my first new script project in a couple years.
2) Mrs. Splash has given birth to another Splashling, meaning we're now outnumbered.
3) The black helicopters have been hovering over the Splash Cave a lot again lately.
4) What little time all that leaves me for fighting the good fight these days is more economically spent in that one-click, hit-and-run Thunderdome known as Facebook.

Also, the Wavelength has been inundated by Japanese and Italian Viagra SPAMers lately to such a degree that it's kinda souring me on Blogger...and Viagra.

And what with baseball's winter meetings upon us -- and spring training just a few short months away? Well...

Not that I've unplugged the Wavelength forever. I'll be back, even if only to feed my ego or throw the government and Splashlings off my trail when they get too close.

Until then, stay classy, San Diego.

(Now will somebody please tell me how to say "keep it down, I have a splitting headache" in Spanish?)

That's my shoot-from-the-hip Spanish, anyway.

Auf Deutsch, beudetet "Halt den Schnabel! Ich habe un Kopfschmertz!"

You types are dropping like flies.
Lament.
From McClatchy Watch:

"After blogging for 27 months it's time for me to hang up my laptop.

I've wrestled for the past 2 weeks whether to keep blogging, and decided it's time to quit McClatchy Watch. I have more responsibilities at work, and I have plans for more time with my family. I need a break, too. No, this won't be a temporary break; I don't plan to start blogging again.

There is a definite demand for newspaper watchdog blogs. McClatchy has over 9,000 employees and I know from my stats that tons of them checked in here on a regular basis. My traffic also benefited from people -- plenty of them -- fascinated by the decline happening in the newspaper business. Somewhere a blog will rise to meet the thirst for information."
