Burnett's Urban Etiquette

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

You Should Know...

that I have not abandoned this blog.

But, right now the Burnetts, the Aubergers, the McCittricks, the Nowells, the Melvins, etc., - all of us, 'cause families rise and fall together, right? - have suffered a family loss. And frankly, I'm grieving.

I will post again some time next week. But for now, I just don't have it in me to crack jokes, attempt witty insights on the news or skewer dirtballs and politicians - sorry for the redundancy. All jokes aside, I'm as close to crushed as I've ever been.

If you believe in a higher power, say a prayer for us. If you don't, and you're so inclined, then think a few positive thoughts for us.

After a little time - maybe next week, maybe not - I'll share more. Till then, be patient and know that this blog will be back on track in no time at all.

Peace and hair grease,
