To begin ...

As the twentieth century fades out
the nineteenth begins
it is as if nothing happened
though those who lived it thought
that everything was happening
enough to name a world for & a time
to hold it in your hand
unlimited.......the last delusion
like the perfect mask of death

Assistance & Counsel Needed: An Urgent Plea


For the moment we seem to have resolved the problem described below by switching to the updated version of the Blogger editing function.  We're leaving the earlier posting, however, with paragraphs inserted in the normal manner and with many thanks to those who came to us with assistance.  Just for the record. (J.R.)

Dear Readers --

We have  been having some very serious issues with creating posts for the blog. As many of you know, many of the posts require specific line breaks, paragraphing and other formatting. For some reason, Blogger has been erasing all formatting and turning certain posts into large blocks of text. This occurs when we publish the post and have it scheduled for later date. When we return to check, the formatting is gone and attempting to correct is has proved futile: when we return hours later, the formatting is still gone.

It was suggested I try a different browser, but that has not helped. Has anyone had this problem? We are becoming desperate as it is hard to keep up with the blog while on the road and the constant correction of posts is incredibly frustrating as the changes do not remain.

If you have any suggestions or can point us in the right direction, please email to jrothenberg [at] cox [dot] net or to my assistant Amish Trivedi at amishius [at] gmail [dot] com.

Thank you for your help and for reading the blog!

The same thing happened to me last year, and the other day I had a less consequential formatting problem. The basic solution is to switch to WordPress, but a small stopgap for Blogger is Windows Live Writer, which I'll be e-mailing you about. In the meantime, here's a consoling text.
