Failed Empire

Chronicling the collapse of a failed society

Apologies for the light posting

A pseudo-promotion (i.e., more work for the same money) has very successfully eaten away at the vacant office hours which I used to be able to devote to blogging.  Hopefully things will calm down within the next couple of weeks and I’ll be able to get back to regular posting.



Apologies for the extended break in posting.  I’m on vacation this month and will be doing some traveling until Sept 1, so I’m afraid regular posting is unlikely to resume before then.  The timing couldn’t be worse considering all that’s going on at the moment.  All I will say is that I’m taking all of my extra money out of dollars and putting it into gold, and I’d advise everyone else to do likewise – we’re in for some turbulent times.

On the Road

Welcome to the Blogroll: Ummerica Loves You

A busy day today so I’m afraid I won’t have time to write, but in the meantime check out the excellent new web comic, Ummerica Loves You.  What follows is a good sample and hopefully the only mention Griftzilla (h/t Tengrain) will ever receive on this blog:

Technical Difficulties

Rabies Hiatus

Apologies for the extended break in posting.  The explanation has to do with the aforementioned rabies scare – a scare which, hopefully, has reached its end.

My wife and I developed some worrisome medical symptoms over the last few weeks, prompting me to pass on the job in Oman.  The worst seems to be behind us, but the stress of all this has made writing about politics and religion seem, well, somewhat trivial.

This blog is not dead yet though, and I hope to resume posting on a regular basis within the next 1-2 weeks.

Back to the Desert

Posting may be light over the next week as I prepare for a move to Oman. The plan is to stay there until June, but things could change overnight. It should be an interesting experience but I may not have much time to post in the next few days.

Apologies for the Light Posting

A combination of a bad internet connection and lingering fears of an imminent, painful death from rabies have conspired to keep me from writing, but things should be back to normal by tomorrow.
