Things have been short and sweet in this space lately, haven’t they?

Well, you know what they say. “Take care of the business and it will take care of you.”

That has nothing to do with why things have been short and sweet, but it is a good phrase. I like it.

Maybe instead “they” should say this. “When one turns twenty-five one loses his or her ability to write pithy online vignettes, but only if he or she was born in Overlook Hospital of Summit, New Jersey.” At least you’d have an explanation if that was what “they” said.
