Economy More Deeply Troubled than Thought; Bush Off the Wagon? Comments Enabled

It's becoming harder than ever for economic pundits to avoid the D word as news of the breathtaking drop in both American and overseas markets hits home.

At the same time, as someone who has become obsessed with the damage done by America's unwise policy of drug prohibition, I also see our economic woes differently than most and fear that the most promising American President elected in my lifetime may become ensnared in the mess left behind by the worst. I'll have a lot more to say about these contentious issues in the near future; which brings me up to the main point of this entry.

As a senior citizen who had arrived relatively late at both information technology and Drug Policy Reform and then took up blogging even later, I now find myself in a strange bind: the newly acquired computing skills that had enabled me to jump into two new arenas in late 1995 are becoming almost as dated as the first computers I’d bought back then. Buying new computers as needed to keep up with advances in processor power while continuing to practice as a “pot doc” has been relatively easier than keeping abreast of recent networking techniques; especially since becoming a bit of a maverick has forced me to do most of it myself.

The real reason for this entry is that I just learned how to enable comments, a process that took longer and was more complicated than I’d expected, but is now a click away.
