I can't offer anything really creative for this opening blog. And I don't know if anyone except me will ever see this stuff. But I thought It'd be nice to have a place to post my thoughts in a passive, non-obtrusive way. That is, rather than assaulting my friends with them (who won't be my friends much longer if I continue to assult them, I imagine).
So reading is voluntary. Responses are, as well. And if a friendly but impassioned dialogue can result, so much the better.
