Greetings, my friends, and welcome to a new era here at The Corner. You may have noticed a slight drop in the number of entries of late. While the actual cause of this was unintentional, I forgot to post on Tuesday, the result is one I have been contemplating for a while now. I fear that in my zeal to post daily for a year I have substituted quantity for quality. Many a day I would post any old cartoon or silly video I came across in an effort to live up to my arbitrary compulsion rather than in a genuine effort to entertain you wonderful folks. So I am abandoning my quixotic goal, and aiming instead for quality of content over number of posts. I hope you will find this a better option.
I have recently discovered a little online thing called Twitter. It's a service where people can post little snippets, I've seen them described as 'mini blogs', that go out to all the people who are following you. At first I was merely watching what others had to say, but soon I started sending 'tweets' myself. It's kind of fun. You can check it out at Twitter.com. My Twitter name is IMarius.
I bring this up because one of the people I follow on Twitter is a Canadian gentleman who posted a link to one of the funniest items of this political season. Behold the Sarah Palin doll:
It also comes in a Matrix style plastic trench coat, or a jump suit. To me I think it looks more lifelike than the real thing. :-o
So I hope you all are having a great week, and I welcome your comments and suggestions on how you thing things are going here at The Corner.
