Promises, promises

Boo hoo hoo hoo The self-absorbed are falling all over themselves promising to deprive us of their presence as some kind of punishment for our sins. First came the string of has-been celebrities that threatened to quit the country, like Cher. - Cher? Sonny and Bonno Cher? Really? - and now Stephen King chimes in: "that's it, no more from me."

King, the best-selling author, tweeted early Wednesday that he’s going offline, saying there will be “No more book recommendations, politics, or amusing dog pictures for the immediate future. I’m shutting down.”

I predict we'll survive.
