Why blog? I don't have time for this!

I'm convinced that communication is the key to every successful endeavor. Words and thoughts do matter and can be used for good or ... well ... not so good. Throughout history, we've seen what words and thoughts have achieved - and destroyed.

Today, I see words like "equality" and "freedom" and "rights" being bandied about in state legislatures, the U.S. Congress, and on the campaign trail.  What I'm not seeing is a real discussion by the electorate.  What do those words mean to us?

I have opinions and ideas and I'm willing to stand right out on the limb and share them.  I hope you will join me.  Perhaps together we can make some sense of the insanity that is now so pervasive.

I won't be blogging every day - no time for that.  But when something strikes my fancy - or makes me angry as hell - I'll share it with you.  So batten down the hatches because I think 2012 is going to be one very interesting ride!


  1. Welcome to the blogging world, Maryann. Looking forward to reading your commentary.

  2. I think you should begin each entry with "And another thing..." :-)
