How did this get past me?

Somehow, I neglected to perform my every-couple-of-days check of Bill Whittle's site, and he sneaked out yet another amazing essay.

Once again, Bill captures the sort of thing I clumsily struggle to express. And the "pull quote" he singles out says in two elegant sentences something I've butchered countless virtual trees to say:

Go. Read. Learn. I'll be in my cups over my inadequacies yet again.

I meant to say also that Beldar's still on my RSS list. I keep hoping he'll return, even though it's been a year since he posted. Not even his Longhorns winning the MNC in football brought him out of whatever hiatus he's on.

I need to put Bill on my RSS too, because I wrote this post on Nov 5th.
