> The national political battle rages -- nothing much has changed in the last week. Rush Limbaugh's Operation Chaos is wreaking havoc on the Democrats.
> I'm about through with the book. It's taken longer than I anticipated. I overestimated how many pages I could write in a day. I mistakenly translated my sprint speed (I can write 4-5 pages in a single hour) to my marathon speed and thought I could write 20-30+ pages a day. I probably can some day, but the most productive day I've had this week is 14 pages. It's hard to keep that intensity for several hours straight. One bit of good news -- every day this week I've written more than the day before. I hope to get the manuscript in the mail by Monday.
> I plan on visiting the Mexiteria this afternoon to pick up some chiles rellenos. My birthday present to myself.
> If I don't talk to you before then, Happy Easter.
> Time to get back to the book.
[Edit: The book is finished. Now I can rejoin the land of the living.]
