There was an earthquake in southern Illinois which shook the bed I lay upon in the wee hours: 4:37 CST according to the news report. True, the epicenter was 240 miles away, and, also true, it shook things no more than a passing convoy of construction equipment would have. Nonetheless: I plead seismic activity in making this Friday a Blog Free Zone.
Okay, wait, I’ll level with you: No mere 5.2 earthquake could stop me from posting. In actual fact, I simply have too much to do: Must prepare for a flight to St. Petersburg tomorrow. Liz and I are flying down to Florida to check out Shmeckerd College to see if they are worthy of her. Of course, no place or person is, but we are magnanimous in our judgment; our mercy tempers our justice.
