Some years ago, I happened to write a report on local blogging for a newspaper. I read several local blogs, met a few bloggers and, to verify my instructions to readers on how to start a blog, actually created one here at blogspot by the same name. It had just one entry, a one-liner to complete the process.

Then came the Iraq war and I was fascinated by Salam Pax the blogger who gave us a perspective from inside Baghdad as the bombs fell, quite apart from the perspectives of journalists on the ground.Although I was interested, other pursuits occupied me. But here I am now.

I am not sure where this will go, but the plan is to write on a variety of topics. I itch when I see a bad argument. This blog is my chance to scratch when I see one. My hobbies, and commentaries on topics that interest me also fit into what I want to do.

Let's see where it goes.

Post Note:
Last night when I was trying to log into my blog ( I had created a new one recently), I accidentally found my old blog - the one mentioned above. I had thought it was gone, after so long. So I've now copied the few entries here and will use this.

Glad you started writing what you want, not what you are told to do.
