There are over 1 billion websites in the world (according to Google) and you took the time to visit mine.  I’m flattered.  Thank you!

This site is about politics.  It’s about media.  It’s about culture, by which I mean the way we inform, educate and entertain ourselves and interact with each other.  It’s about people, places, and organizations I want you to know about.   It’s a simple site because I don’t think simple is shallow.  I think simple is clear.   It’s easy to be complex.  Making things simple takes more effort.  It shows you respect people’s time.  Which is why this intro is so short.
