The Paragraph Stacker

Uncensored columns from an exiled newsmane

ITEM ONE: I had typed a list of six or seven items, most of them political in nature and almost all of them serious.

ITEM TWO: Alas, I somehow managed to lose the Microsoft Word document in which I wrote them.

ITEM THREE: I recall one mildly amusing suggestion about the NFL, but you didn’t miss much.

ITEM FOUR: The storyline about Item Four has completed and no developments occurred in the lost document.

ITEM FIVE: I’m so discombobulated by the lost document that I’m not bothering to use the “typist” and “ol’ Paragraph Stacker” language endemic to Hot Sheet.

ITEM SIX: I could work very hard to reconstruct the thoughtful political takes, but I won’t.

ITEM SEVEN: I believe this is God’s way of telling me nobody gives a shit about what I think about politics.

ITEM LAST: This may also be God’s way of telling me to stop this silly blog.

Daniel P. Finney once had an editor who called his writing “ordinary and bureaucratic.”

    God does not use Microsoft Word to speak to you. I know this because the program was written by programmers from Hell and subtly designed to interrupt the flow of thought and creativity through random glitches; for instance the complete disappearance of an entire document.

    I have gremlins in my computer(S) that lose things for me. When I wrote grievances, this would happen regularly. I always figured the gremlins were in opposition to what I wrote. Probably sent there by real people who opposed what I was writing. I believe in hackers.

    Whether you rewrite or not is your choice. But I will say that after rewriting, I always liked what I wrote a bit better. And yes, tears were shed when stuff was lost.

    I’m sorry to let you know that it wasn’t God speaking, but Satan. Ignore him; keep stacking. I hope your week gets better but I haven’t noticed that much of an upward trend all year, so don’t hold your breath.

    Take care…
