With Big Stories Brewing, Bacon Goes AWOL

So much to blog about and so little time… Unfortunately, my wife suffered a death in the family, and we have to travel to South Carolina today to attend the funeral. I will have no time to blog today.

If I did, I would dearly like to turn my attention to Gov. Timothy M. Kaine’s announcement of budget cuts — and the Republican response to the effect that, “We told you so.” (Readers of Bacon’s Rebellion may recall that we blogged this spring about those very concerns.)

If I had the time, I would read, absorb and report upon Virginia’s new rail plan as well.

If I can sneak away during the wee hours of the morning and tap into the Hampton Inn’s Internet connection, you may hear from me yet!

    Thank you for your kind thoughts. Laura’s grandmother was 93 years old, had lived a full, independent life, blessed by many friends and family, up until a year ago, and was ready to go when she passed. Most of us would be very fortunate to live such a life.
