WHAT WE ARE
First, what we are not: we do not claim to be a fountain of truth. But we do
try to ferret out what is not revealed.
We do not claim to have all the answers. But we try to lay out all the
parameters of the issues -- we hate selective reporting, the virus invading
journalism reaching its apogee in the "embed".
What we are is a modest website. We hope to remain so, and will never ask
you for donations.
We do not have live comments because we do not have the capacity to
monitor them for abusiveness. While we cannot respond individually to
sent comments, they do affect our decisions. So please keep writing.
Lastly, we also try to offer lighter fare -- a restful bench under the trees, if
you will, where the doom, gloom and heat of the news is tempered by a cool
summer breeze. We will continue to serve as a platform for understanding
and peace in this fraught world.
