I gave up.

It’s not that I’m not opinionated enough to have a blog; I have opinions up the wazoo. But I have, previously, confined my opinions to letters to the editors, letters to other blog writers (which they have occasionally posted), articles on various forums and web sites, and the like.

But now, I’ve given up.

I don’t know if I have the patience, staying power, or wherewithal to maintain a blog. We’ll just have to see. But I do know that I simply have too damn many opinions to allow them to be filtered through Josh Marshall, Andrew Sullivan, Salon.com, Time magazine’s editors, or whoever. So here we go.
