Somewhat incapacitated

In case anybody has been looking here and wondering what happened to me, it's been illness. About three weeks ago -- four? -- Jen noticed I was looking yellow, which means jaundice. Long story short, moving from a hospital in Murietta that couldn't help me to Cedars-Sinai, I have a blockage in my biliary ducts -- some relieved by a stent, so the jaundice is gone, but what remains is cancerous. There's a surgery called Whipple to take such things out, and I'm now at home taking antibiotics and preparing for surgery, perhaps in a week. I doubt if I'll have much to say about politics for a while yet -- you might be surprised just cooking right and taking care of me takes. But I'm feeling good and optimistic. Maybe more on my condition as my strength increases, but then a silent period again.

We should be meticulous and fussy in all the information we give. We should be strikingly prudent in giving information that we would not dream up of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to evade giving counsel which we don't follow when it damages those who woo assume us at our word.

Simply because, when a woofer cone flexes, there is a reduction of output. This decline of output translates into much less bass.
