Following InstaPundit Glenn Reynolds' lead, I thought I would share the cause of my blog hiatus last Friday: yielding to the demands of middle age, I submitted to a colonoscopy. The procedure itself was not that bad, but the preparation was horrific: I was forced to drink 96 ounces of TriLyte, the most disgusting concoction known to man. (Cheney and Rumsfeld really missed the boat on this -- the Gitmo detainees might have been able to resist waterboarding, but they would have given up all they knew by the 72nd ounce of TriLyte.) Thankfully, I passed the colonoscopy with flying colors (see photo on left) and won't have to endure another one for ten years.
