Everyone else seems like they're blogging their personal thoughts online these days; I thought I'd start posting my thoughts on political opinions, events, and ideas I come across that spark a response from me.  I'll go back through my computer files and post old letters to the editor, etc. to get a handle on where I was and where I am now.

I currently feel this is all a waste of time and nothing a "small" person can say or do will influence world events.  But like my son-in-law, Sani Obhodas said the other day, if every grain of sand didn't do its part there would be no desert.  Even though a desert isn't exactly life-giving, it serves its purpose in Creation.  Just by eating, breathing, and crapping do I do mine? Perhaps anything positive beyond that is considered a plus in God's eyes.
