I've been getting my real estate license back in order lately as I am leaving the chairbound realm and reentering the world of the mobile and talkative very soon. My back is healed, I'm tired of sitting at a desk all day, and dammit I like meeting strangers, so back to work I go. When I left real estate, I assumed (wrongly) that I wouldn't be doing it ever again, so I let my license lapse instead of putting it in cold storage, which means I have to take the damn test again. I barely passed it last time (not that I studied) and don't look forward to struggling through it again, but frankly little or nothing of what they test you about is applicable in real life. Which is kind of the way multiple-choice testing is, I guess.
So I'm not blogging worth a crap, and that's cool too. Doing it at a high production level (which I rarely have) takes considerable time and effort, and when you express most of your feelings about politics and pop culture in writing religiously for a couple of months, you stop giving a damn about any of it remarkably quickly. I have no idea how Instapundit does it, but God bless him.
Speaking of the Blogfather, there's a fine post by him today about reality versus good intentions, based on the cameras being installed at stoplighted intersections where there is a problem with people running red lights. It seems like they would help, doesn't it? According to the State of Virginia, they don't.
