I knew what I was going to write about later so I spent a good part of my day having a life-if you can calling it having a life. Eating, catching up on Days of Our LIves, and watching some more Time Team episodes, regretting that I never followed through on my first choice of career: archaeology. I
Anyway, I knew what I was going to write about–a response to comments posted on a certain political enemy’s Facebook page. My response was pretty short and simple but would qualify as a blog post. I went over to the FB page, cut and pasted what I needed, and wrote. It didn’t take long. An hour or so later I returned to FB to get the link and–guess what! The post was gone. And it had over 1000 comments attached to it without one note of criticism. (The page doesn’t allow criticism since they are always right) . WTH?
The post had been up for several days. I thought I must be missing something. It’s getting late. I’m tired. I went over the page three times. Then I went over it on my phone one more time. Gone.
Of course, that brings up the question of WHY? It was about an outdoor event they were throwing, and the only answer I can come up with is that it’s been postponed or canceled (due to a bad weather forecast)–since it most definitely will be held in some form. Then, why not just say so? This is not the first time they’ve postponed or canceled something and didn’t make a public announcement about it. It’s weird. Since the subject comes up every few weeks, I can use my comments later.
This comes after a discouraging week where I spent an entire day writing 4-pages of submitted comments to a last-minute (for me) l “informational” legislative hearing in a state that is currently out of session, only to have them rejected because I didn’t get them in on time. (The hearing was not advertised). The committee secretary was nice and said I can submit them when and if there is a hearing on the topic next year. I can use it as a model for similar hearings in other states, too, which will save a lot of time.
At least I have two documents today that won’t have to be written later.
I know what I am writing about Monday.
