Non Sequitur's :L is for 50

The Original Forward (XXV Non Sequiturs)
Non Sequitur, latin for "it does not follow". A Non Sequitur is a statement that normally jars with the flow of thought in a particular discussion. It can also be present in a monologue or presentation when a particular part of the argument again does not fit in the general theme. In Maltese a Non Sequitur is normally followed by "X'ghandu x'jaqsam?" which can be closely translated as "What does this have to do with what we have just been saying?". Non Sequitur is also a brilliant comic strip by Wiley Miller which features the hero Obviousman.

In J'Accuse the regular Non Sequitur feature is used to place irrelevant titbits of factual information or as a comic pause between posts. As its title implies it is generally a bit of information which does not require any further comment. It is not Blogging for the sake of Blogging. I love a good Non Sequitur as much as any other post which is appreciated by others.

And now… L for 50
And now we have reached 50. The chronicle continues and the Non Sequitur's will never stop. I have considered moving this corner of "j'accuse" to "the laughing fit" but I consider it the cartoon section of my column so it is here to stay.
