TFS Magnum: Year One

Well that got here faster than I expected.

Last year at this time, like many people, I was angry about how the election was going. In particular the spin and predictions of doom that accompanied the end of the so-called Assault Weapns Ban was driving me crazy. (They were not Assault weapons, nothing was ever banned, ...) So, I started a blog. (My first post)

Kerry and his whole "I am a friend to the Second Amendment" song and dance also made me cringe.

But a year later, I have to ask myself if it all matters in any way. "What am I doing this for?" is a question I am having trouble answering.

Several people have given up lately. Countertop Chronicles came closest to capturing my feelings:
As I sit here, after almost 2 and 1/2 years of blogging I shudder to think of all the time I could have spent more productively ....

While its been fun (and heck, adictive), I've come to a point in my life where I just don't see myself capable of justifying the time needed to keep this blog up.
I could in a few months worth of hard work, probably finish most of the work on my boat and leave. The carribean seems less inviting after 2 years of horrible hurricanes that even hit the traditional summer hide-away of Grenada. (It just isn't supposed to get hit by hurricanes, and it was nearly wiped out last year.)

So while I won't stop blogging, I will probably blog less and less.
