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.

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.

As much as it pains me to bump Xtina from the top position here at APW (she'll always have the top position in that dream I had last Thursday), the US today announced that we have officially moved from Stay the Course to Cut and Run. As reported by Reuters:
Two weeks ahead of U.S. congressional elections that have put President George W. Bush's Republicans on the defensive over their Iraq strategy, the U.S. ambassador and military commander in Baghdad told voters directly via a rare joint news conference that success was still possible, and on a "realistic timetable".

Insisting sectarian bloodshed had not caused Washington to water down its goal of a stable, democratic Iraq, envoy Zalmay Khalilzad said he expected Iraqi leaders to make "significant progress in the coming 12 months" in meeting "benchmarks".

Timetable. Benchmarks. (Or, "How I Learned to Love Cut and Run.") That sounds like what we (that's the editorial we) have been saying all along. Especially in this post, from October 13, where we said:

...the debate between Dems and Reps is really this: the Dems are saying that as long as we refuse to signal a willingness to initiate the transfer of power, there is no motivation for the Iraqis to "stand up," and so this is an occupation without end; we are essentially acting as enablers to them, our smothering "love" preventing them from taking respnsibility for their own defense. If we send a clear signal that we will be leaving soon, the Dem argument goes, the Iraqis will stand up, because they'd have to. "Only when we stand down, will they stand up."

Looks like the president was paying attention. Good for you, George Dubya! But next time you stop by and read APW, leave a comment! Its the very least you can do, what with us making foreign policy and all.

Sadly, I think the prez just stopped by to see the Xtina pics, but then read your opinion on foreign policy and saw the light.

He too has dreams about Xtina. I think he dreams of her on her knees. But, again sadly, the dreams are about prayer in our schools.
