So, here I am--starting a blog. I'm not sure where this is all going, but I guess the best thing is to introduce myself-more or less.
When I was 15 years old my father was transferred to Texas, ripping me and my siblings from our native heath in the suburbs of a Northeastern city and replanting us in the malarial clime of the Texas Gulf Coast. In the forty-odd years since that happened, I have been trying, with only limited success, to figure out how to get out of Texas.
My most recent endeavor along those lines involved owning a small business in New Jersey, one of those undertakings which seemed like a good idea at the time. After five years in the wilderness of Jersey, I started looking for a job and wound up in Austin, where I had attended grad school at UT in the mid-70s. Austin has the well-deserved reputation of being the best city in Texas (and I've lived in several others over the years), but it is still Texas nonetheless.
I'm pretty sure that this blog is going to be about politics and other stuff, but as a well-known Southern philosopher once said, "Tomorrow is another day!" So we'll figure that out then.
