I’ve been trying very hard not to do much posting about politics and policy here since a) this space is provided by my employer, b) there is enough free, independent web space out there for the taking, and c) this country is more and more becoming a scary place in terms of intellectual and personal freedoms. The problem is that I just haven’t had time to create some new space, and the idae of another place to keep my thoughts is somehow daunting to me. Still, I read stuff like this and I just get outraged, and I have no outlet for it. (BTW, if I do create that new site, it’s name will be “If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention.” I saw that on a bumper sticker in Key West and it just rang very true.)

That’s one of the lures of this easy publishing stuff; all of a sudden you have a voice and it’s frustrating when you can’t fully use it. We’ll see…
