OMG! The CDC transporting SMALL POX in an unsecurred panel van. What moron thought that would be a good idea???
I also enjoyed your TL, and look forward to read version 2.So Christmas time is the end of the year. Being quite busy with finals, traveling etc. While I didn't have time to write anything new, it gave me time to read what I had already written.
All I can say is Ouch!
Looking back now, I see some positives to DUCK AND COVER. My writing has improved dramatically, and I definitely got better at research as time went on.
However, (which is apparently my favorite word it appears A LOT in D&C) I have come to the conclusion that not only did I jump the shark, but nuked the fridge and ran myself into a brick wall of ASB and writers block.
In short, I am closing Duck and Cover and making Ducking and Cover v2. Starting over, is the best way forward I believe.
OK. Everybody saying that the dollar is worthless, especially in Cleveland. Are you forgetting that we have a Federal Reserve Bank? And as to growing anything, the fields are barren right now. They don't start planting up here until May. So it is possible that you have a massive campaign to remove the contaminated topsoil from these fields and replacing it with non-contaminated soil (Of course, where are you going to get it?). The OSU Agricultural Extension in Wooster will be helpful (If Wooster isn't slagged).

Friends, Followers, and Fellow Survivors,
I should ask you a question. Should I resurrect Duck and Cover? I know that I have been working on The Day After, but now after some time I feel as if it has been a worthless exercise, a waste of not only my time but of an ever more valuable resource. Yours.
I guess here I should try and defend my decision to switch to The Day After. I should mention that some IRL problems were spiraling out of control. I should probably go on and moan about writers block and the holidays and getting drunk, and all of that. I should wine about how I posted that I was going to do it and the felt obligated to do it. But I know that I shouldn't this isn't the time nor the place. That's hogwash for another time or place.
What I would really like to do is apologize to my fellow writers, especially Chipperback who's TL I nearly derailed by my decision. I would like to apologize to Macraggle (where ever you are) by throwing your whole universe into whack with the Prospero Redux stories. I want to apologize to the others that have tried to start Tls with conflicting information and accounts. I want to apologize to my readers who I threw for a loop, to my friends for confusing the crap out of them, and to those out there who don't pay attention to Protect and Survive.
In retrospect I shouldn't have made that decision. It was stupid, it was unnecessary, and in a word selfish.
So I want to make it up to you.
DUCK AND COVER IS COMMING BACK BABY!
