As is probably already obvious, I am adjusting the purpose of this blog. I'm not longer going to be putting the fiction and creative writing here -- I'll be pursuing other options with those writings -- and will be using this as a) an online presence and a portal to me publish writings, b) notes on journalism, and c) cultural criticism and thoughts in process.
For the three of you who read this, thanks.
Someone has spray painted the word "Jesus" on the curb behind the dumpster in red, outside the newspaper. They have added a stick-figure crucifix.
