Just spent 45 minutes writing a new post here about a wide range of topics: HBO's Big Love (love it), the Duke U. lacrosse team case (gang rape and hired hoochy dancers, all the elements of a huge night on the Nancy Grace show), the new class I'm teaching that is the best group of students I've ever had, and some new links to fascinating crap on the internet.
Just as I got ready to hit "publish post," AOL blanked out and lost the connection. Everything disappeared.
Mothereffing AOL. This only happens about 20 times a day when I'm on deadline. And for the past two weeks I've been on deadline around the clock.
I notice that my cable's "On Demand" feature is billboarding a soft-porn flick called The Witches of Breastwick. That and a box of gluten-free cheese crackers just might get me through the night. Will try to write it again tomorrow.
