SLOGGING NOT BLOGGING

  Yesterday I didn't post my Monday Morning Muse. Instead, I was slogging away promoting "The Simon Trilogy." I spent the morning tweeting a hundred plus politicos, talking heads, and news reporters with a catchy byline. To get around the 140 character limitation, I created [...]
