Eclectablog is back…sort of


Sorry for the lack of updates. Blogger had a 20+ hour problem that put all its blogs into “read-only” mode and I haven’t been able to add new content or make updates. More on Blogger’s issues HERE.

I’m still missing a couple of posts including the one titled “The Difference between Wisconsin and Michigan”. I’m told it will be restored. If it’s not, I’ll repost it later. In the meantime, you can read it HERE as well.

I’m sure the Michigan Democratic Party is thrilled that this post went away. They have spent an enormous amount of time deleting comments on their Facebook page from people upset that they are not supporting the recall efforts in Michigan or the repeal of the Emergency Financial Manager law. I’ve heard from multiple sources that their phones have been ringing off the hook and their email boxes full to the brim from people upset at their lack of support.

I couldn’t be happier at that result. Perhaps it will get them on the stick. I’ll certainly have more to say on this in the coming days.

Finally, on a personal note, yesterday I put up a silly blog entry about my dog getting a black eye. This has turned out to be a very sad story. It turns out that Hara has a condition called immune mediated thrombocytopenia (IMTP.) Basically her body is attacking her blood platelets which explains how she got a black eye so easily. She has almost no platelets which has resulted in internal bleeding, as well. She’s been at the emergency clinic since last night and things are still very much touch and go. This could go either way and we’re very frightened we may lose her. Fingers crossed and prayers said. Probably won’t be a whole lot of blogging for the next couple days. Thanks for your patience.
