I have given it a little thought and have decided I will dedicate this blog to two things.
1) I will try to post about things I've thought about that I've not seen discussed elsewhere. I don't just mean topics not discussed (that seems unlikely), but particular takes on those topics. In other words, what I think has, thus far, been (as far as I know) thoughts unique to me. I figure this is a reason to blog more than just bloviating about things repeated ad nausuem elsewhere in the blogsphere. (Who needs to read yet another 'me too'!)
2) Somewhat in contravention of item (1), I will sometimes post about things that are not necessarily unique if I simply get pissed off enough to feel the need to say something. Note that this is not necessarily something that will happen very often.
A general rule that applies to both (1) and (2) above is that I will probably only write about something that has me sufficiently chomping at the bit that I really have something I feel the need to say. I won't force myself to write on any set schedule, in other words. Sort of like how the great Keith Olbermann only does one of his "special comments" when he is appropriately inspired. (And I do not mean by this to say that what I have to say will be anywhere near his comments in content, relevance, or quality).
The next thing I intend to post (when I get the chance) is a little bit about me, as is hinted at in my 'about me' caption, just to let anyone who reads this have some idea of where I'm coming from. I am somewhat hesitant to be too specific, because some like to label people and then ignore them or criticize them based on the label (Oh, he's a 'liberal' blogger, or she's a 'right-wing blogger' or 'he's an insane monkey-brained heathen with delusions of grandeur') rather than addressing the points at hand.
