Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Don't Be "An Energy Voter"
At least the sort of energy voter the American Petroleum Institute would like you to be. They're the ones behind the slick and slimy "I'm An Energy Voter" p.r. ad campaign. The API is all about oil drilling and exploration anywhere, at any cost, and prolonging the use of fossil fuel as long possible. They want us to vote for conservative legislators who suck up to Big Oil/Gas/Coal.
A real energy voter, while acknowledging fossil fuels will not disappear soon or entirely, will nevertheless vote for progressive candidates who understand the folly of trying to extract every last oily drop before thinking about anything else.
This blog is offered as an amusement to any open-minded, liberal-leaning readers who may stumble upon it, and as an educational service to the closed-minded conservative crowd.
I hope you like it. If you don't, get your own blog.
