I am new to this blogging thing, and this post is a test flight because I am too dense to figure out how to preview my design ... so, here I am flying without a net .
Design changes are most definitely going to come soon. I am starting this blog as an outlet for my considerable frustrations with the political landscape as it currently exists. Sometimes I will sound angry (because sometimes I am) and sometimes I might seem to be a bit too light-hearted about serious matters. It should be fun (for me) and I will attempt to make it fun for you, too.
I am a "diner rat" and I get much of my news on cuurent events at the "Diners" that I frequent. There is not a better place to meet and talk with a cross-section of the population. Diners are diverstity and democracy at their best.
I can't close without giving props to the following folks for luring me into this environment, and promise to create links to all of them as I learn how to tweak the design of this blog.
Micheal Reynolds - The Mighty Middle - MR is the first (and one of the best) bloggers that I found at random when I decided to find out about weblogs. Very smart, well read(as opposed to educated) and a very insightful person. He would much rather be seen as a cigar-smoking, booze-swilling (the good stuff), mega-consumer, one man show .... but we all know where his heart lies and this guy has "substance".
Justin Gardner - Donlephant - Wheel-man for the most diverse centrist site out there. this is a must visit site for those who are of the mind that our political system is due for change and reason. If you visit this site and choose to participate .... have your act together ... these folks know how to make a point! Must reads at this site are Alan Stewart Carl, Callimachus, AMBA, MR, and a host of others who I will be introducing you to in the near future.
Annie Gottlieb - Ambivablog - Annie is a diverse individual who "keeps on keeping on" with an amazingly positive and fiesty demeanor, and on top of that, knows what she is talking about. A bright light in an ever dimming world.
That is it for now ... it is lunchtime ... can't miss lunch .... see ya at the diner. :))
