Yeah, I know. On Monday, I reviewed the Supreme Court's decision in State v. Mole, and concluded the post by promising you that the next day I would explain why the case is one of the formative events of your life. Then the next day came, and you find a post on the latest batch of 8th District decisions on -- gag -- sentencing. And then the next day came and went, with nary a word from me.
Well, that's because on Wednesday morning I came in to work at an ungodly early hour, booted up my computer, saw the message "starting up Windows" flicker across my screen, only to learn that it was a lie. As they used to say on Second City, "it blowed up real good." It's on at some diagnostic shop even as we speak, probably on some kind of ventilator in the hopes of keeping it alive.
"But Russ, certainly you have a computer at home," you say, as I once again engage in the literary conceit of pretending we're actually having a conversation. True that, and if the dog hadn't eaten my homework, I probably would've been able to get it done there.
I'll have the post tomorrow. Honest. You can trust me. I was going to say, "so sue me," but then I realized my audience was particularly well-suited to do so.
See you tomorrow. Really. No, really.
Oh, by the way, one little tidbit about Mole. I said the court took a year after oral argument to issue the decision. Actually, oral argument was in July of 2014.
