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.

Veterans on the Iraq War
Sunday, November 20, 2005
The Republican party has done a hell of a job of spinning their Iraq war as some quintessential act of patriotism, the implication being that if you oppose the war, you must not be a patriot. The latest shameful example, and one that is backfiring, is the attempt to smear Congressman John Murtha.

The administration ceaslessly invokes the name of our fighting troops over in Iraq to justify this war. As if it is a foregone cconclusion that if you are a vet, or if you are in Iraq right now, it somehow follows that you support the war.

And every once in a while, you end up wondering: is it true? DO all veterans and soldiers support the administration and this war?

When this happens, its nice to get a reality check. In which case you may want to check out this blog, by a veteran of the Iraq war. Or this vet's blog, or this one, or this one. Not scheming political tools, like the Swifties; just regular Joes who served their country and speak their minds.

Check them out. And the next time someone has the gall to say you are somehow disrespecting the troops by opposing the Iraq war, you can explain the way of the world to them.
