This is my 7777th blog post, not counting the several hundred I have deleted over time. Rolling into the twelfth year, there is not a lot I have not touched on in my blast tenure. If I have learned anything it is that you can not please everybody.
I was talking to a very successful friend the other day who mentioned that many of our mutual clients are put off by my "left" political stance and that it has cost me business. Although I have tried to not ruffle feathers and be accepting of all viewpoints, I believe that to be indeed true.
The very next day a liberal friend said that she thought I had been taking my foot off the gas pedal and was now leaning too conservative.
I really can't win.
After posting pictures of Yellowstone I got this note.

Some people are clearly here for the pictures and hate the politics. I appreciate that. The truth is that I have not had any political metamorphosis whatsoever. What I have had is a desire to seek common, middle ground and to not stay in a permanent state of outrage. I use to write seven blogposts a day pointing out every rotten thing in Denmark but it just got old for me.
I will continue to raise the environmental alarm on issues that I feel impact our air, earth, water and animals at every opportunity. And also to point out the hypocrisy of an administration that calls for public decorum one day and refers to a congressman as a Schitt the very next. Business be damned. But like the bard said, to thine own self be true. Read me or don't read me, I got to be me. Blast marches on.
