About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

My Photo
Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

The Pope, Reconsidered
Sunday, April 10, 2005
OK, so maybe I went a little crazy over the pope. I stand by what I wrote, but admit that I was sucked into the nostalgic, grieving, meloncholy of the global funeral. When I talked about "greatness" as a measure of magnitude, I meant that great isn't one step higher than good; no, it is one step past, say, significant. It is, as I said, a measure of magnitude, not quality. And the swatch the pope cut through history was one of a great man. On a different scale, Robert Moses was a great man, but he was a wicked little scoundrel.

Again, I am not religious. And I tend to think that organized religion does more harm than good, in that it inserts some sort of hierarchy in between man and God. I like the idea of no middle man, no church managing my relationship with the Big Fella. Hello God, its me Josh. Have you been reading the blog?

But the outpouring of emotion was so pervasive and profound, even a boen cynic like me couldn't help but take note.
