I still receive letters of protests from readers offended by the dearth of publications on this blog. (Very few letters, to tell the truth: for the most part, it’s just relatives and friends worried about my health). I will not apologise: this is a strategy. I am trying to turn this into a quiet place where few wanderers can take refuge from the confusion and hubbub that rages in the rest of the internet. A place clear of the clutter of unsolicited opinions, loud comments aloud, and extraordinary news.
