If you arrived here via a comment I’ve posted somewhere, perhaps looking for the promised link to set up a recurring donation to Herman Cain 2012, please navigate to  I am recovering from attacks on this blog, one of my own making, and the other a hack.

If you are a returning reader, my apologies for the schizophrenic nature of this blog’s appearance.  You know I shot myself in the foot Thursday night (11.10.11) by tinkering under the hood with the permalinks and bolluxed things up pretty good, but now I have evidence of an outsider hacking the site.  My “dashboard” in WordPress has a lot of heavy white space in it, and the left hand menu has disappeared, evidence, I’ve come to understand, of a malicious attack.

I knew I had some weird visitors, people from Slovenia, etc, that didn’t make a lot of sense, but, research seems to indicate it’s no mere fluke of “the world-wide internets” but an all too common occurrence of hacking, for no particular reason, it seems, other than it can be done.

Thanks for putting up with me while I figure this out.  Salt may be in and out, up or down, in days to come, but please know any outages are temporary and on the way to getting to a permanent fix!
