By the way…

I try to keep this blog from getting too self-conscious, but there’s a point to it this time…

My elder brother wrote:

Apparently my brother is too well-bred to bring up the distasteful subject of Melancholy Gibson’s recent mis-adventure–or perhaps the matter was simply judged not to be old enough news yet for Godsbody. In any event, it looks like it’s been (intentionally?) left to me, the less-refined of the Lickona brothers, to step up and do the dirty job that somebody’s got to do.

As the official custodian of this blog’s “Today in Porn” feature, I take umbrage at the notion that I am the more refined of the Lickona brothers. Breeding has nothing to do with it – I simply didn’t have anything intelligent to offer. Which doesn’t always stop me, but discretion scored a victory in this case.

In other news, I’m back in California, and hope to post more regularly.

    how long will you be remaining in California?

  2. Hey Matthew,

    We don’t mind if you take a break from hosting and blogging for a few days or even a week! Just don’t make it a month, you are the ONE.

    Either your brother is not used to blogging, writing, whatever, he just does not have your insight and pace. But he certainly has his own point-of-view.

  3. Mark Lickona says

    Ah, yes, my laborious Germanic-scholastic prose. Canals of phlegm in comparison to my brother’s effervescent wit.

    All apologies, esp. to the host. Far be it from me to bog down his blog–or to sully his well-earned reputation.

  4. Matthew Lickona says

    Sweet fancy Moses, Mark – don’t go apologizing to me. And send me your new email.
