What dots? may disappoint you. It will surely disappoint you if what you are looking for is wit, satire, irony, vitriol, rant, gobs of data, quotations, citations, and dissertations. What I will promise to give you is a piece of my mind, for whatever that's worth. I will not attempt to keep you abreast of the latest virtual gossip, so don't come here looking for scoops. What I will attempt to do is to provide you with some "dots"--mileposts for the mind. If you should desire to wander in here, I hope that you will find some raison d'etre: a reason for living. This may sound a bit pretentious. I don't mean it to be. I simply mean that I hope to tie some loose ends together for you, help you to make some sense of this crazy-and-getting-crazier world. If the world makes sense (even darkly), a path out of the morass may manifest itself.
Think of Google Earth. If you zoom in on a location, it just looks like a mass of gray stuff. You can't tell where you are. If you zoom out just far enough to get a point of reference--a "dot", as it were--it seems to make a lot more sense (or reason). I will try to find the best height above the "political earth" to help give it rhyme and reason. I promise to give you...dots. It's up to you to fill in the places between the "dots"--to get from where your head is to where my is. Good luck!
