UPDATE: Starting Aug. 1, 2017, I will be suspending this blog as I begin my service as a Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia.
My quick background: I worked as an editorial writer for 32 years for The Kansas City Star until October 2016, mostly writing about local and national political issues. I’m a liberal on many social matters.

Thanks for coming — I hope to irritate, inform and please you in the future.
