For various reasons, not the least of which is that I've had less interest in political blogging lately, most of my blogging activity will now be found at The Real Jon Lester blog, which consolidates all of my interests into one place, with an emphasis on my creative output.
Similarly, the funniest of the new wave of get-paid-to-click sites does much the same thing:
You can expect to see more of my referral links for similar "PTC" sites. Things are so bad now, I'll take a few extra pennies a day where I can find them. I would greatly appreciate your support.

Yesterday we lost Pylon guitarist Randy Bewley all too soon.
As a lifelong resident growing up in the Athens area, Pylon was one local act that influenced me as much or more than my favorite international artists. While their reunions were frequent, we never know when we've already seen someone's last show. It's another reason to support live music, to see your favorite acts and your like-minded friends when you can, because everyone should enjoy times with others before the next unexpected loss.

One Great American
Tonight, Americans from every walk of life celebrate the 100% survival rate of US Air Flight#1549 after its emergency crash-landing in the Hudson River. The LinkedIn page for pilot C. B.

Way to Go
Some days I wonder how and why I ever belonged to RedState; I assume full responsibility for my own failure to see the rapid deterioration of the community as a whole into dementia, before I abruptly quit last August.
I have reissued the 2006 "Terry & Holly" EP for sale through Amazon's mp3 store. I used the CreateSpace service which allows authors to upload and submit music, video or text for sale and with no up-front costs. I have also submitted another EP with "The Bowman Draws" as its lead single, and I expect that to be available on Amazon as well within the next couple of days.

Apologies from GA-10
As a constituent of Georgia's 10th Congressional District, I pass on Rep. Paul Broun's regrets:
