Well, I did my best to keep posting daily during the holidays, but I eventually just ran out of steam. I don’t feel any more inspired after a couple of days off.
The Council will be selecting a new president today, and tomorrow they will meet for the first time in 2009 (PDF) to decide on, among other things, new Committee assignments. But for whatever reason, I just can’t think of anything I feel compelled to say about any of it. Maintaining this blog requires a tremendous amount of energy, and I just don’t have enough of that right now to keep doing it. My interest in Oakland politics seems to be waning quickly. I don’t know whether that’s a result of frustration with City Hall or just being burned out, or what. In any case, I’m going to be taking a break from blogging. It might be only a week, it might be a month, it could be permanent. I really have no idea right now. Check back next Monday for an update.
