This site marks my return to blogging, after having been silenced since 2007. I am a writer, editor, photographer, historian, columnist, critic, traveler, book collector, Basset Hound devotee, animal lover, and scold.
Let me make this very clear. I am not interested in getting into an argument with anyone. Either agree with me, keep your opinion to yourself, or don’t follow me. It’s just that simple. There are some points of view I am just never going to take seriously, and I don’t believe every person’s opinion is of equal value. You’re not going to change my mind by arguing, being shrill, or trying to shout me down, so why waste your energy?
