Just a brief word of introduction and a welcome to all of you. I live in the wild western suburbs of Philadelphia with two exuberant kids who talk back to me and a cat who with an addytood. I'm a journalist, on the communications staff at a local educational institution, and an iconoclastic believer. I believe in God, and I respect those who doubt His presence. I believe in the power of love to change lives, and I know what its like to have been kicked in the teeth. I'm a liberal evangelical with a dislike for ideology of any sort, and a fierce devotion to human rights. I'm hoping that this spot on the blogosphere will be a place for kicking around the big questions and some of the smaller ones: who is God? why do men and women find each other so mysterious? Is there hope for politicians of any party? and...why do people around Philadelphia hate the Yankees so bad? So jump right in there. I love back and forth. I'm going to try to put my opinions out there, and I expect you to do the same. In churches I've attended, they call it speaking the truth in love. I'll try to respect you where our truths may clash, and I hope you will do the same for me and the others who will post to this 'blog. Ok! Anchors away!

Wow, you did it! You really mean business! This promises to be a great read.

Here's the link I was going to send you last week, sorry it took so long. Jon's been doing it for a while. I like how he imbeds links in his text. Layers upon layers...ahhh.

His interview of me is under "The Ink Smudge Interviews".

You are inspiring. I'll be asking you to link to my future blog before too long.

Lots of things to think about - especially from the foothills of the Rockies when sometimes it is hard to imagine finding people who think at all, especially outside the box. Keep writing,

"Lots of things to think about - especially from the foothills of the Rockies when sometimes it is hard to imagine finding people who think at all, especially outside the box".

My response is "Oww!"

With all due respect, and the respect is due because even people further west of the foothills of the Rockies can and do think outside the box. We out here on the Frontier are still forging ahead and pioneering the West Coast freedom of thought and never afraid to express in the most vocal manner. I mean, how many times do we have to legally, legitimately, and democratically say we want the right to end our own life if we are terminally ill by voting for it in Oregon with a majority and still have the Feds try to take what we have decided as a state away from us? That is one example of many. But I do agree with Anonymous: thinking and doing outside of the box is critical to fulfilling our constitutional rights, its just a pity we have to work so hard for something that is ours by right anyway.
