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.

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.

Thus Spake Me: February 24th
Friday, February 24, 2006
(God's column appears in this space every Friday.)

Honestly, I don't understand what all the fuss is about Gay marriage. Some of the Literalists seem to think the bible speaks out against it. But then, you wonder why these same people don't engage in stoning or owning slaves. As I've writ in this space on more than one occasion, don't take the bible so literally; it is impossible to convey nuance in Aramaic. Its like writing in Klingon.

But when you ponder the morality of same sex wedlock, remember: If God didn't mean for gay people to wed, He wouldn't have made so many of them. Or invented taffeta.


Things look bad in Babylon. You have the Shi'a destroying the holy Sunni moaque, one of My favorite mosques by the way. The Americans seem to be hypicrotical about "democracy," insisting that the Shi'a allow the Sunnis and Kurds to participate in the governing of Babylon. But apparently, its OK in the US if the Democrats play no role in the American government. I realize its not quite the same thing, but actually, it is. Majority rule means losers weepers. In the Muslim world-- especially in Babylon, where three different peoples who don't belong together were knitted into a single country after your first great 20th century war, by the Europeans-- this inevitably has consequences.

I'll do what I can to keep things from going very badly there. But I'll only do so much, because I've never been much on determinism; I'm a big free will Guy. The rest is on you all.
