He Needs a Vacation!
A brief hiatus for Dot Chat
The Rock of Talk’s editor and policy director has been fighting tax-hikers, enviro-loons, corporate-welfare queens, single-payer socialists, poverty pimps, educrat unions, Identity Politics hustlers, and the lifestyle police for nearly 30 years.
D. Dowd Muska might have had a vacation — i.e., taking a trip, not bringing work along, and relaxing for at least a week — in the spring of 2001. He can’t remember the details. But certainly there’s been no break in the last two decades.
Now, Dowd loves his work. For him, it’s not a “job” or a “profession” — it’s a calling. Plus, besides pruning apple trees and providing canine care, fighting Big Government is the only thing he’s good at.
But he recently reached a big birthday (half a century), and when his sister and brother-in-law proposed a Sin City vacation — with a roadtrip back to New Mexico — Dowd thought “going on holiday” wasn’t such a bad idea. (Think he’s earned it?)
So Dot Chat will be on hiatus for a little while. But fear not! It will return before you know it.

Yes, Dowd needs a break. Everyone needs to recharge their batteries. I go camping in the mountains. Oreo cookies. No cell service. No outside world. Listen to the Silence. Camp fires. Oreo cookies. I used to work on a fire lookout tower for two summers and got paid to look at the mountains. Amazing what it does to your mind and health.
So Dowd, we'll deal with it while you're gone. I will have withdrawals, but I'll be okay.
I just quit my job, so I understand the need for a break. Hopefully the Governor will give me free money so I can relax for a while... Ha! Isn't it amazing that some people really follow that line of thinking?Dowdy is a good man, he just needs a Christian awakening to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior from the destructive effects of sin. I'll pray for him. I agree with most of ideas though.
