This is where I post stuff.

Most was written by me. Some of these posts were originally columns published elsewhere, and I just reposted them here for one reason or another. Others are original to this page - probably because I couldn't find anyone to publish them. There are also a few items from other sources that I wish to share/highlight.

John Massey's Fundraiser

OK. I held off for 24 hours, but no one at WAVY posted the report about John Massey's fundraiser at Boneshakers on Sunday. So I'm going out on a limb and posting it myself. If WAVY wants me to take it down, they can ask me.
