To Whom It May Concern, Michael Totten
is excused again today from blogging because he is terribly ill. As his way of embracing the holiday spirit he spent 22 hours sharing with strangers. Specifically he was travelling and inhaling recycled airline air in cramped conditions and somebody was willing to share their latest virus with Michael. Four hours after he got home, his temperature reached 103 Fahrenheit and he fell like a poleaxed steer. Rather than blog under the influence of tussin remedies, Michael has decided to stay in bed and be miserable.
Thank you for your patience,
Patrick S Lasswell
