I Apologize: Excuse my absence

And I know there were factual blunders in my last post that need correcting, even without looking at the comments.

I’ve had several things to write about but not the opportunity.  A combination of work, a typhoon, and a failing refrigerator partly stole my time.  But more importantly, two relatives of Taiwanese friends are not doing well: one with a blood clot from the AstraZeneca vaccine that went to his brain, and one with cancer whose chances depend on experimental medication.  If only money were the problem, everything would be fine.

I do have something to say about Saturday’s 48th anniversary, the 162nd anniversary twelve days ago, and some other recent events.  I’ll get to them this week as time allows.
