Due to the finalization of federal litigation and a plea agreement that was reached, the creator of Liberty and Independence must come clean and admit that during the months of June and July of 2010, the L and I blog was not manufactured in the United States.
It is with hardened heart that I confess child labor in Switzerland was used to complete the work. I now realize that the almighty dollar should never get in the way of good old fashioned blogging. Apologies all round.
In my defense, however, I must point out that blogging should be a winter sport. It's tough to type away and smoke a pipe in a corduroy blazer when it's one hundred degrees outside.
Also, most of my spare time was spent completing a project. I can now say, with some degree of confidence, that it is complete. Weighing in at 72,000 words, it is the book I promised myself I would write. I have placed it in the responsible hands of individuals who are well versed in the intricacies of the english language. Yes, I speak of public educators. I look forward to the brutal truth. I am a viking. I can take it.
I wish to personally apologize to my wife and son who resorted to toting a cardboard cutout of me to family functions while I toiled away at a very large piece of shredder fodder. Thank you both, and rejoice.
