A colleague recently asked: "LBF, why don't you write something every day?" Good question. My response is, who wants to talk nonsense all day every day? I certainly don't. I prefer to think before I speak, and reflect before I write. Only 5% of available published information is worth reading anyway. The vast majority of scribblers are people who ought to take up another pastime. "Put the keyboard down and step away from the electric typewriter", indeed. Do bored housewives and angry young men really think they have something meaningful to say? No, they don't. The advent of the Interwebs has allowed and encouraged the proliferation of drivel. For the rest of us, the situation requires a corresponding fine-tuning of our filter.
