This my first post on my first blog, and I am going to experiment with this website to see how it works. I find myself commenting on news articles online, and then they disappear into the nether. I will begin creating responses to articles I read, and then post the comments linked with the article here for further discourse, and to record my research. I like to delve into a wide variety of topics, so I won’t limit myself in scope other than to say I will follow a whimsical pattern of finding topics that interest me as I scan the headlines. I call my method psychic impression, not because I have any psychic powers, but rather because I let the random chaos coupled with my curiosity to guide my reading and commentary. If anyone should come up with an idea or want to delve into a particular topic, I’m open to suggestions. As a rule, I’m willing to discuss just about anything, and I strongly oppose the tyranny of political correctness. I, as a rule, remain polite and expect others to act and interact with civility, but I also value a good argument or discourse. Let’s begin to ask questions together. Let’s explore the world that has opened up to us with the advent of the internet, and let’s write down our thoughts to preserve discoveries or epiphanies we may find along the way. I look at this blog as if I were digging for gold, the wealth of understanding that we might discover, and it’s like the California Gold rush all over again.
