Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. This is traditionally a very busy time at my job, and I've got a few side projects that have been sucking up some time as well. When you live in Michigan in this economy, you never *ever* complain about having too much work...
Also, today is my 34th birthday, and I've been squeezing in some celebration time with friends and loved ones, making sure that these 34 years have been actual *living*, not just *surviving*.
I have not, as some have joked, "gone underground" due to the Department of Homeland Security report out this week that may consider my "Internet Chatter" in favor of free markets indicative of my right-wing extremism. :-) (Incidentally, DHS, I am pro-choice, pro gay marriage, pro open borders, and non-interventionist in foreign policy.)
I have many posts brewing for your reading pleasure, including:
* Reflections on Alexis de Tocqueville and Erich Fromm (!?!)
* A love-filled missive on why I think that the preservation of Individual Liberty is the highest duty of our government
* Why I just love a good Tea Party
* Thoughts on the future of the music industry, long-tail niche markets, and patronage
* More on newspapers, reputation systems, and the editorial role we all play for each other
But while I get cracking on those upcoming posts, I'll share Shelly Roche and Michelle Lee Muccio with you (okay, Rockwell, Schiff, and The Judge are in there too, but who am I kidding?):
