I realize that there are not a whole lot of you, but I do have reason to believe that there are a few of you out there.
Please note that henceforth I shall be adopting a pen name, Mercutio, taken from Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet This is, of course, a literary affectation.
As Mercucio, I've also started a new blog, A Plague on Both Your Houses, in which I shall take aim at both the liberal and conservative political viewpoints which pollute current American political talk (I will not call it "discourse." ) My post below, about Sharpton and Beck, illustrates the sort of thing I will be saying there.
Cheers, and I am respectfully
Mercucio (a.k.a Duncan C. Kinder)
