My readership is falling off. I can’t say I blame you. I’ve been busy working on a particularly intransigent painting and spending a lot of time on the subway going places so I don’t have a lot of interesting things to report. I will say that my foodstamps are being reduced from $200/month to $84/month because of the shutdown. It’s a good thing I like beans and rice. When the painting is finished I’ll post it. Meanwhile enjoy Scott over at BIE. Also, because I’ve changed probation districts, it looks like my chances of getting off early have pretty much evaporated. That means the book won’t be out until at least November 2015. All good things come to those that wait.
