Hello and welcome to my Blog.  I should like to use this space to tell you a little about myself as well as my motivation for creating a blog.  My name is David, and at the time of writing this post I am a senior at Clark University, a private university in Massachusetts.  I am a philosophy major and an economics minor.  I read the news –not as often as I should–, gripe about the world, listen to music, and do all the other things that a normal college kid does.  So, why am I making a blog?   The motivations are twofold.  I increasingly find myself wondering if I am alone.  I do not mean ‘alone’ in the ‘I have no friends so I went to the Internet for pity’ sense of the word; rather that I sometimes wonder if I’m the only who feels that the best word to sum up the state of affairs of the country is in fact not a word, but some sort of exaggerated-hand-waving-arm-flapping gesture, thing.  So, I look to the wide world of the Internet to see if anyone else out there is on the same page as I am.  While I am confident that some of you will agree with me on most things, I am equally confident that some of you will disagree with me on most things; and certain that none of you will agree with me on everything.  Which takes us to the second purpose of this blog, debate.  It is my hope that this blog will be a place for people to discuss, argue, and debate things.  I have no doubt that every blog writer and forum owner who has come before me has wished his or her blog to be a place of great discourse; and likewise that no writer has ever wished to have his blog filled with tiresome hate mongering by both sides of every issue…but if all of them got to dream, so do I. 

I do not mean to suggest that every topic I discuss on this Blog will be serious.  Quite to the contrary, I fully intent to include things I find amusing, product reviews for stuff I intensely like or dislike, my random thoughts on movies, etc.  I will, however, make a good-faith effort to take advantage of the Categories feature supplied by the fine folks at WordPress. 

Please find below my promise to you, the reader.

1.  I shall make every effort to be sure of my facts (citing as appropriate) when I make statements of fact. 

2.  I sall distinguish as clearly as possible when I am making statement of fact, and when I am stating an opinion.

3.  I will be extremely cautious in my ability to delete or moderate comments and discussion on posts. 

Once more, I welcome you to my blog, welcome your ideas, your thoughts, your feedback and your experiences. 


David Glenn
