Folks, this is awful timing, but you won’t be seeing as many blog posts from me as you normally would, on account of this:
Someone smashed the window out on my truck last night and stole the newpaper’s laptop, the one that is my primary work platform. I do all blogging, all e-mail, most working of photos and cartoons that I handle, plus all of the video and other stuff I do for the blog. All administrative files, such as evaluations and budget info, were on the laptop, plus all of the photos I had taken of candidates for this fall’s elections.
My truck was one of 10 broken into on my street.
That the computer was in my truck was just the worst possible luck. It’s probably been years since I’ve left it there overnight, and I only did it this time because on Monday I came to work without it, which put me way behind on the week, and with the confusion of election night and all, I wanted to make sure I remembered it this morning. Add to that the fact that I normally don’t take it home during the week, but only did so last night because it was election night and I was going to be working from home. I still can’t believe this.
Now I’ve got to run out and deal with the guy who came to replace the window in my truck; he’s here now.
Back to you later.
Now watch this: Lee will blame this on Obama.
