Announcing a short and cranky damn hiatus. Expect me back early to mid-May.

It sucks, man. I just have too much to do. I’m in the (usually) enviable position of having business clients coming out of my ears, nose and briefcase. And they all need something now, right away, pronto – not next month.

Where were they all back last November and December, when I had nothing to do but sit around and think about how much the Bush administration gets my effin’ goat? To say nothing of the New York Bloomberg administration.

Why can't I find time to sound a warning that if poisoned wheat gluten could kill cats and dogs, it might be killing people, too? I mean, do you know where the wheat gluten in your bread comes from?

But no. I have to sit here writing advertsing for my demanding clients.

And will they still be around to pay the bills at the speed they demand work once the work is done?

Don’t bet on it, Bunky.

Well, it's a good time to take a break. I was going to do a number on Rudolph Giuliani, but before I got to it, Giuliani did a wonderfully self-destructive number on himself. He practically appointed his wife Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare before he even got a quarter of the way to the Republican nomination, much less the White House. Then he took it all back, nearly saying he didn't say it.

George Bush just got slammed by the U.S. Supreme Court on the environment. Even timid Democrats are raking him across the coals on Iraq.

I mean, just for now the world will survive without me taking potshots at the right, and besides, I'm too accursedly busy!

So for now, this blog is taking a rest. I’ll be back as soon as I can. Probably in a couple of weeks. Probably still feeling as irritated as a pit bill with his nose Krazy Glued into a pepper pot.

Until then, watch out for yourself, pal. Under the accursed Republicans, no one else will.

Crankily yours,
The New York Crank
