Dear friends:

I decided to shift to shorter articles.  I still plan to keep a sharp eye out and ear open to things that interest.  But I think shorter is better for now.  Don’t get the idea that I’m done writing more lengthy pieces: I just might write a long one if the spirit moves me. But for now, I’ll be trying to hit singles instead of homeruns.

The shorter format was inspired by Dr. Thomas Sowell who is now retired. He used to write articles entitled, Random thought on the passing scene—short pieces contained in a longer article.  The new heading—CODGERTATING:WHEN OLD GUYS THINK.— is me laughing at ageing. What else is there to do?  So look for these shorter bits.  They’re likely to appear with  more often and they’re fun to write.

Thanks for reading my stuff.  I really appreciate it.
