Blue Heron in flight

I'm sorry, so sorry...

I got a slight harangue and buffeting from friend Jim last night. While it is my intention to slay dragons from every quadrant, north, south, east and west, he tells me that he detects a serious lean to the left in my writings. Something that he does not detect quite so much in our oral conversation, by the way. Blog might be getting creepy. Mark has given me similar warnings of late.

This is troubling because I try my upmost to stay fair and balanced, taking my literary and ethical direction from such information paragons as Fox News and the New York Times but it apparently comes off differently on the written page. Or so he says.

He told me that it is bad for business. I'm not retired after all and I risk alienating a large block of the paying customers. He might have a point. I will endeavor to not be quite so strident and off putting and to make this blog a comfortable branch where all fair folk are free to perch, whatever feathers they happen to flock.

Had a dream last night where I crashed Jim's 57 Chevy. Didn't tell him, gave it back in the dark with the front end all dented. He called and really let me have it.

I think you call 'em like you see 'em. I hope you don't change that aspect of your writing!! Most of the time, I happen to agree with you.

The left is the new center!

If one purports to be a centrist then one has no true convictions.
