Thank you for stopping by!
This is a personal blog about things that matter as filtered through the mind of an educated, opinionated American male.
What is justice? How did things get to be the way they are? Where do we go from here? Community and individuality, civilization and law, politics and tradition, reason and science, ritual and freedom, mercy and making a difference -- these are the issues that will determine our future.
Lately, there's been a bunch on here about writing, blogging, family, and marriage.
And then, on other days, it will just be blather -- but at least it will be in my voice.
