A column about history, culture, policy, and things in between.
I have been blogging for a year and a half and have addressed matters of history, culture, policy, and sports, with columns ranging from the deadly serious (a three-part series on the Virginia Tech. Massacre), to the political (two-part series on Separation of Church and State), to the adventurous (back-packing through Glacier National Park).
Right now I need to pull back a bit. I don't plan to stop, and if Brookfield Now will still have me, I will continue as matters of interest present themselves. At some point I may return to a weekly schedule, but in the interim there will be fewer columns. Given that, I would like to devote some of them to matters of interest to you. So let me know what those topics might be.
My last two posts were from the heart, and I still feel the enormous loss of William F. Buckley and Brett Favre. Buckley was and Favre is; well - they are simply larger than life. And since I believe we need heroic figures in our lives, I shall miss them greatly.
I have been surprised by and grateful for the number of readers, and I say a sincere "thank you" to all who have stopped in on this page. That said - I certainly acknowledge that the number of readers does not not necessarily correspond to the level of agreement or approval!
So thanks again everyone - I had a blast.
