The Year of Our Lord* 2012 was a very unpleasant year, all fight and struggle, sturm und drang--with a final result that we have a government that hardly budged an inch. Friendships ave been battered, however, and many who once were friends no longer are. I can count among some of my nearest and dearest several who do not communicate with me at all any more.
So be it. These are times that try men's souls.
Some have left my life because of this blog. But. This blog has become a shell of itself. December was a hairy month for me workwise; I only blogged four pieces, all of them fluff and of little import.... and yet my readership was the second highest it has ever been. (November was nominally the highest, but that was because I got hit with a 'Blogger virus' and some webcrawler was attempting to post spam on my comments section.)
Nevertheless, it is clear that my blog is in need of a wider audience and I MUST post to it more. Insofar as the Tattered Remnant series seems to have run its course (I'll probably add to it a time or two, but for now, we're letting it rest).
Where to now then?
The answer is simple: THIS IS THE YEAR OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION.
For the next 12 months, I will make upholding, protecting, and defending the Constitution of the United States the primary theme of this blog. We'll be looking at the Federalist Papers, the Anti-Federalist Papers, the Constitution itself, the Amendments, and the role that the courts, particularly the Supreme Court, plays in shaping its meaning.
Our first post on the subject commences tomorrow.
In the mean time.... Happy New Years, everyone!
*And yes, it was. Just like every other Year.....
