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!
Another "Proud to Be an American in the Internet Age" moment: I just found the new official White House Flickr Photostream. These photos, straight from White House photographer Pete Souza, are a remarkable visual document of President Obama at work, at play, and being a good dad. It's also open for comments, just like a regular Flickr account. Very cool... and sometimes darned funny.
