And before this goes much farther, I need to introduce myself.
Believe it or not, this weblog has not been hijacked. I have been invited by my good friend Patty, the mistress of this site, to provide some of my own politically-themed gripes and bitches.
You will note that I am nowhere near as familiar with domestic and local politics as she is. That's fine--having distinct perspectives, we will step on each others' toes less often and the end result will be less repetitive and more entertaining.
Anything else? I can't think of much else that's necessary. I look forward to enjoying the freedom that using a friend's page promises.
