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.

Another Strategic Blunder By the Left
Wednesday, August 10, 2005
I see that some on the left are trying to demonize Judge Roberts by suggesting-- in TV spots no less-- that he has sided with abortion clinic bombers.

This is a great illustration of the perpetual ineptitude of the left.

It makes no sense to demonize the man in this fashion (note that I don't address whether or not it is true, because that remains wholly irrelevant in American politics.) What can this possibly accomplish, save for getting people opposed to the man to feel slightly more opposed? "Why worry about the 52% majority that isn't with me? I want to focus my attention on the minority I already have on my side!"

No, the thinking, strategic move would have been for the left to take out ads saying Roberts was IN FAVOR of abortions. You know people on the left oppose the guy on principle, because he was nominated by Dubya; by planting the seed that he is "soft on social issues," the left could have divided the right in two, and successfully blocked the nomination. Or at least weakened the Republican base in the process of confirming the guy (which will almost certainly happen anyway.)
