So yesterday a long-time reader, Martin Pollard, told me he was done with ZVTS and my negativity on the Dems.
I'm done with your pessimism. I'm done with your negativity. I'm done with your endless stream of gloom-and-doom. You do absolutely nothing to give any liberal/progressive/Democrat even the slightest bit of hope or encouragement. That's your right and your prerogative, and you might even have some justification for it, but that doesn't mean I have to subject myself to it anymore. So long, and I pray that your negativity ultimately ends up being unjustified.
I respect Martin's opinion, and I know you guys do too. He's been here at ZVTS for years. If it's been that bad lately that I'm driving off long-time readers like Martin, then maybe I need to look at taking a break for a while. I've been at this for ten, coming up on eleven years now. I know I took a break back in December of 2013 and it was beneficial, but that was more than five years ago.
Some self-reflection is definitely in order.
So, I'm going to step back for a bit and see where I am, and I'm at least going to take the week off. The place will survive without me for a week, but I'll be back.
I hope you will be too, and I hope that I'm able to continue to give you all a reason to come back as well.
