Welcome to my site. This is a general interest blog with a heavy slant toward political, social, and religious issues. I am liberal, in the classical sense, raised in Alaska, living in Florida, trying to get by like everyone else. I have strong opinions but am capable of changing them when presented with new facts or a better argument. Please feel free to present either.
I will caution that if you have neither a compelling argument or competing facts, you will be ignored at best and savaged if I’m feeling irritable. It might be helpful, before submitting any comment, to ask oneself if the argument you are about to proffer is of your own construct, or an attempt at repeating something one saw on television, or read in a magazine. If the latter, perhaps a cooling off period would be warranted, before submission. If the former, then by all means, please engage. New ideas are always welcome, and these days seem to be in short supply.
I decided to embark upon this venture at the suggestion of family and friends, who have grown tired of my rants and tirades and offered that my opinions might be more welcome if directed at the Web–or in any case, some direction other than themselves. This website is the result.
It is in an “under construction” state, but I will be adding to it regularly even as I continue to tweak the format and presentation. Please bear with me if the look and feel should change, as I am not yet satisfied with the overall layout. I probably never will be, but for the next few months the changes may be more frequent and significant. After that, I expect it will simply be a matter of fine tuning.
If you are curious about the name of the site and it’s origin, please see this post.
