Unfortunately, there's no way that I'm going to get part three of my little saga completed within the next couple of days; I don't have the time required to write it and, quite frankly, I'd like to snap myself out of the mood that re-opening this old wound has put me in this past week. (For the record, the column was never intended to unfold in the manner that it did, nor was it meant to stand as such a detailed account of events -- sometimes you begin writing and things just go where they do.)
It dawned on me however that something I wrote a few months ago can work as a sort of bridge between where I've left off -- and where I'm going next. At the time, the post I'm referring to seemed thoroughly apropos of nothing, but by using what I've written recently as a primer, it will now suddenly take on new meaning and make a whole lot more sense.
Feel free to check it out, and know that I hope to have this latest column finished by early next week.
