Here We Go ...

After using Facebook in an apparently somewhat unprecedented, issue-oriented, blog-like manner for the last several months – to the chagrin of some, it seems – I've finally made the effort to launch a real blog. The intent and scope of this endeavor, to the degree that any exists, is to foist that which I find interesting and worthy of illumination or comment on all who chose to subject themselves to whatever I offer up. Those that know me well will expect both a few recurring themes (music, media, cultural and political topics, and sports), as well as the occasional random tidbit or esoteric oddity.

I am fortunate in that I have many smart and thoughtful friends and colleagues. I envision writing for them, and I hope they will be motivated to comment now and then. I also hope that through one means or another, others whom I don't know will also discover this content and find it interesting, informative, thought-provoking and sometimes worthy of comment.

One last thought: I hope the humor, whether blatant or subtle, will always be near the surface. I'm always amazed that just because I do like to get into "heavy" topics now and then, people seem to think I'm way more serious than I really am. I hope you'll see both the serious and the silly.
