David – Thanks for putting that in perspective. I’ve only read one Gibson novel, Neuromancer. Interesting if not especially enjoyable.

SB – Of course we want to know about your cats! All I’;m saying is that blogging about things that don’t force one to get out of one’s chair shouldn’t win one extra points. I realize that for a disabled person, there may not be too many options. But there’s still book reviews, record reviews, etc. I do feel we bloggers ought to providing new content of lasting value, from time to time at least. (Obviously, you do that with your poems, among other things.)
