    One of the most bizarre stories in a while coming out of South Carolina, Sanford takes off last Thursday and becomes basically incommunicado.. now the story is he wanted to be alone and was hiking the Appalachian trail..

    This story is so full of holes.... if he was on the AT, shouldn't he have told someone in case of state or family emergency??? If he is on the AT, why carry a laptop... excess weight?? Didn't anyone notice he was preparing and packing for his hike?? Bizarro mondo...

    What's so strange about wanting to get away from it all for a while? I am not sure your narrative is correct, that he went missing.

    There's a great work of art extolling the melancholy mood, the typical poetic humor.

    Il Penseroso by John Milton

    HENCE vain deluding joyes,
    The brood of folly without father bred,
    How little you bested,
    Or fill the fixèd mind with all your toyes;
    Dwell in some idle brain,
    And fancies fond with gaudy shapes possess,
    As thick and numberless
    As the gay motes that poeple the Sun Beams,
    Or likest hovering dreams
    The fickle Pensioners of Morpheus train.
    But hail thou Goddess, sage and holy,
    Hail divinest Melancholy,
    Whose Saintly visage is too bright
    To hit the Sense of human sight;

    Much as I like this, and much as I agree that our friend Sen. Sanford should quote Milton in his first press conference on the subject of his frequent jaunts, it's starting to look as if a passage or two from Paradise Lost may be more apropos by that time.

    Now as to what's so wrong with wanting to get away from it all: I can't leave without telling the boss or the wife, and without squaring away the things I am responsible for. That is to say, without making the appropriate arrangements. Neither can our poor no-doubt Milton-reading Sen. Sanford.

    You think you'll be gone for a few days? Let your staff know how to reach you, or transfer power. Don't leave a leadership vacuum. Better still, forego this little personal quirk while in office. Man up and accept that some fairly heavy responsibility is part of the job. There are 100 U.S. Senators at any given time. There is only one, in recent memory, who has decided he needs neither to transfer power when he goes on vacation, nor tell his own staff or family where he went.

    Worth thinking about, nu?

    So, do you have an opinion on this story, or just someone's choice to begin a thread about it?

    Actually, Il Penseroso is not from Paradise Lost. He wrote this and L'Allegro when he was in his twenties.

    Do you [like] literature, too?

    Love ya, brother from another mother.

    It gets deeper and deeper.. now he says he was in Argentina.. not only out of the state, but out of the country.. interesting that this was not picked up by some type of federal data base as he had to use a passport.. or is there another explanation???
