More than 20 years ago, I was a writer for a local newspaper in my home town of Galesburg, Illinois.

At that time, the paper had very little in the way of opinion or advice columns. I conceived an idea forĀ a weekly column where I could reminisce about life, the universe, and everything. This blog is the long-gestating continuation of that and will include perspectives on life, solutions for the world, and some thought-provoking (perhaps completely outrageous) opinions and solutions to the problems of the world.

I promise nothing more than an in-depth look at alternate perspectives on how “common sense” is taken for granted, and why we must set it aside to embrace the radical ideas that may just save the state of our existence on this fragile sphere we apathetically keep trying to obliterate.
