This is an idea blog. The intention was to kick-start discussions about ideas, but it has turned into my catch-all blog. I cannot take responsibility for any posts or comments other than my own, nor for where the links take you. If you are offended by what I say, you can let me know. Otherwise you are on your own. Not intended for children or the thin-skinned. Tell it like it is...

Like many of my generation, I grew up in a fading industrial city in the Northeastern U.S. This one's saving graces were being surrounded by the natural beauty of New England hills, and its proximity to New York City, making the area a prime spot for the country houses of the Robber Barons.
