The lamp is lit

I’ve dabbled with blogs and websites quite a few times over the years, but the scope was either too narrow or the vision not tuned properly. More personal growth was required; recalibration of the self was needed. The 24 hour news cycle, the easy pull of presentism, and the social-media driven hype and outrage train make it easy to be swept along in what is a surface storm of content lacking depth. I intend this site to function as an outgrowth of my musings based on curated news, piercing through the fog and spray of modern journalistic turgidity.

“American journalism (like the journalism of any other country) is predominantly paltry and worthless. Its pretensions are enormous, but its achievements are insignificant.” – H.L. Mencken
