Since the blogosphere is already vast and wonderful, I try not to waste anyone’s time. So I only post pieces that I believe have a complete thought and make some worthwhile contribution (which turns out to be about 1 out of every 4 posts I start on). While all the snark and sarcasm is in jest, I’ve sunset a couple older posts where I engage with some subjects and/or people in ways that don’t quite feel right. From what’s listed here: I’ve changed my mind on some of these, others are underdeveloped or don’t achieve a satisfactory resolution, but I still enjoy reading most of them.
