Occasionally, I will mention my job, my public service activities, and other aspects of my life to offer my readers a better perspective on where I'm coming from. But to be clear:
"The views that I express represent my own opinions, based on my own education and experience, not the opinions of any other entity, party, or group to which I belong. I give these opinions in my individual capacity, as a private citizen, and as someone who gives a good gosh darn about his community, his country, and the truth."
In other words: my blog, my words, my point of view. Enjoy!
Nymity for Neighborly Conversation: Comment Policy Reminder
I'm receiving a welcome stream of pleasant comments that I am nonetheless deleting in adherence to the anonymous-comment moderation policy. Thus, a reminder is in order: the nymity-only comment policy remains in effect. If you want your comment to stick, I need to know who you are. Include your name—full name, or at least a link that will allow me to easily verify your full name and your actual existence as a real neighbor. If you prefer to conceal your identity but still want to share info, contact me privately. It's nothing personal, and it has nothing to do with whether you agree or disagree with me. It's just about keeping the conversation real. Public discourse is great; identity is the price of admission.
