Rich here, my first attempt at putting my thoughts, in some coherent manner, out in public. I have a Dogma of not discussing politics, religion, or sex with folks I don't know but I do have some strong opinions on those subjects and others. I feel a blog is the best way to express them without losing some near and dear friends.
So, with that out of the way,
