Blogging is a labor of slow love. It takes me forever to write a paragraph. Most of my sentences contain several layers of "inside" information, humorous or not, that most of my readers can't perceive. It's like a kind of art. Hemingway would have approved. Discipline through elimination of excess. His "iceberg" theory, whereby you only show the tip and let the rest be assumed. There's nothing more terrifying to a guy than being found out as insufficiently manly. Male lack is deep and wide. Of course, there's also the matter of distinguishing between being able to read and being able to comprehend. Even those who read can be clueless about what it all means.
