All a twitter

 I have joined my fellow Twits at Twitter and while I'm enjoying following the posts of my friends Peter Sagal, Paula Poundstone, Kyrie O'Connor, Scott Simon and others, I've yet to fully understand the medium.   I can barely keep up with this blog of mine.  Most of the reason for that is brevity has never been my strength.  I'd rather take a beating than made to write a 100 word commentary.  My regular email correspondents -- fewer all the time -- will testify that my replies often go "below the fold", and I'm confident many of my missives are opened, groaned at, and closed unread.  

Twitter may cure me of this.  You are only allowed 140 characters -- about as long as this paragraph.  My twitter handle is TomBodett.  Check it ou...

Nothing's changed. Don't know anything about a Tom Clouse. I'm still TomBodett. Same old place.
