Notice to the readership...
Due to inconsistent internet access as well as some rather serious health issues, I have stopped producing Being Had Times and adding stories to the Polish Police and Administrative Corruption pages. I am not sure if this will be a permanent change or if I shall restart at a later date, but as of the current moment, I am not preparing any new numbers.
At the end of May and stemming from complications from having Diabetes, an infected foot turned gangrenous and I was hospitalized and procedures were begun to amputate the foot. Since that time, I transferred to Columbia Presbyterian hospital in New York where the surgery was successfully completed. Currently I am in a rehab center in Brooklyn and am waiting to be fit with a prosthetic limb. If all goes well, I should be back in Pinsk for the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year.
I have played with the idea of writing some blogs about my situation and location, but as of the moment, it has been very hard finding the energy to do so. Instead I have been putting what energies I have into the completion of a new screen play (Paradise) and working on the outline and first draft of a book about the last seven years living in Belarus. I’ll see what happens about doing some blogging, but for the moment, unless things radically stabilize, I am suspending the Newspaper and Polish Page. Perhaps soon we’ll get started again.
For those who have written asking what has happened as well as for those who knew about my situation and sent good wishes, I thank you for your concern.
