The complete lack of interest in the recent fictional thread combined with the ongoing death spiral in readership (at what point does decency require we pull the plug?) is not lost on Untethered's editorial staff. Therefore, in one final attempt to revive this thing from its catatonia, I hereby announce a new direction. From now on I will stick to straightforward blogging, in the form of literal commentary about issues of broad interest, taking definitive stands alternating between a loose, jocular style and grand, sweeping pronouncements. You can look forward to loads of linking, and much dissection of original material published elsewhere. Polemics like you've never seen before. Also, I'm actively seeking a group of bloggers who will admit me into their linkage circle-jerk; Bob said of Jim's post about my mention of Joe's remarks regarding Bob's... I'm even thinking about going with the lower case i as a personal pronoun. Baby steps.
So, to inaugurate our new path, here's a post about the Iowa caucus. It is, however, written in invisible typeface, similar to that ink that is only visible on paper after you highlight it with a catalyst. To view it you will need to swab your computer screen with a blend of equal parts egg whites, cranberry juice, and urine from a cat in middle to late estrous cycle. Enjoy:
There. That wasn't so hard. Excuse me, I think I'm going to be ill.
