Strike Threat

OK, readers! Here's the deal. I know that you are out there, reading this blog. Statistics tell me so. But if you want me to keep posting with any frequency at all, you're going to need to make yourselves heard.

I've posted something like 15 times in the past week, and all I get in response is a single comment.

Is that the best you can do? I sincerely hope not.

Remember, I'm the one here who is thousands of miles from friends and family. So a line of encouragement would be not only welcome - it would be a common courtesy.

Because the silent treatment can work both ways. And if that seems like a threat, so be it. But use your imagination and put yourself in my position. It's frankly dispiriting to feel that one is simply typing into the damned void with every post.

OK, OK, you can not pump your own gas in the state of Oregon either :)
