Mr. Talk Returns

It's been a while since I have posted. There are reasons, none of which are earth-shattering, but I have been feeling too busy and overwhelmed to do much blogging. I hope neither of my readers missed me. (In truth, when I checked my blog stats today, it actually appears that my readership has grown significantly since my last posting over a month ago, so either people are checking in to see whether I am still alive or some people prefer to read my blog when I haven't written anything.)

Some of you know I was writing for MORE and doing some other stuff for them, but lately I fell down on that job as well, for which I apologize to those people. I don't know what the results of today's election will be, but I can honestly say that I was honored to work with the people from MORE, and I would have been proud to see them snatch a victory here. As unlikely as that is, I think we made a real dent in this election, at least to the point where people are talking about how the UFT does things. And that is all to the good. A democratic union can only work where there is a legitimate opposition, and I truly believe that MORE has established itself as a major player in this union, regardless of the outcome.

That's all I really wanted to say. Hopefully, I can get myself back to some kind of regular posting schedule as I have much to belly ache about.

Welcome back. It was a pleasure to have you on board whenever you had the time. Your counsel was much appreciated. Hope you stay involved with MORE.

It's great having you back. Many of your blog readers probably wondered if you were going through a personal medical issue. Thank goodness, you're okay.

I look forward to your informative, truthful, sometimes satirical blog comments.

I rate you up there with your blogoleagues such as nyceducator, perdidostreet, chaz, and ednotes.

I can't wait to read your next blog.
