Howdy from the Ozarks

Aug 2010
A friend from Texas recommended this forum to me, and I thank him for the invite. The rules of engagement are similar to those of a group I run over at Yuku, and previously at MSN groups -- be nice to others, respect your fellow posters even when you disagree, et cetera. Very nice to see other folks have picked up on the concept of civil discourse.

Not much to say in way of introduction here, except that I'm an almost old guy, a former newspaper editor, sometime freelance writer, and poorer than dirt (why else would a fellow choose retirement in the Ozarks?).

Oh, and the friend who invited me here described me recently as a crazy paranoid old fogey. That's accurate enough, I reckon.
