I have been pondering some end of life topics the last few days. I suppose that there will be birthers longer than there will be me, but I am resolved to stop publishing new articles on this blog whenever the next president takes office in January of 2017. The blog is destined to remain as a historical artifact for the curious in future generations. Towards that end I am slowly working through the 800 (it was more than I thought) broken hyperlinks on the blog.
There are some things about the blog that I want to disclose for historical purposes, and I think the “end of blog” time frame is appropriate for those disclosures (and no, birthers, this blog really is a one-man show not connected with any organization). I may write those now and set the auto-publish date for Inauguration Day.
In the process of writing the blog, I receive lots of information and some of it I don’t publish. I also do a great deal of research on birthers that I don’t publish either. (You might be stunned by the extent.) Twenty years from now, that information might be of use to some bored academic researcher, and I want to make it available. I am thinking of leaving a large document behind for my heirs to publish. The document already exists; just without release instructions. If I were to publish an article on this research, the title would be “Birthers are nobodies.” (I consider myself a “nobody” too.)
