Every time I miss the Round Table I always have some kind of dumb excuse.
Well, this time I have a real reason. I wanted to write a post. I tried to write a post.
But I already wrote it.
I wrote it June 19, 2005.
I spent a long time researching that post and a long time writing it. It was difficult, largely because I'm not overly familiar with the subject. I don't hesitate to say that I think it's one of the better pieces I've written on this now-and-then-serious blog.
I got exactly zero responses to it. Nothing. No e-mails. No comments, and I have open commenting. The post is even in my sidebar.
I didn't really feel right asking to have it included in the Round Table, but I offer it up again in case anyone wants to know what I thought two and a half years ago.
Hope it holds up.
