Remember the old bit from Saturday Night Live about Spanish dictator Francisco Franco? I do, but, then again, I’m old. If you don’t, see here.
Just like other old men suffering from erectile dysfunction, on January 1, 2014, I decided to quit trying rather than looking for a magic pill. So, I shut down this blog. Comments were to remain active for seven days, and then quit as well. I intend to maintain the blog on life support as an archive. After hearing that, Joan, my wife, asked whether that was my homage to myself. What a bitch.
Several months later I imagined the Generalissimo rose again and so I decided this blog should follow his lead.
