Who am I?
I went to the University of Alabama to get a journalism degree back before it became so apparent that most journalists work for the other side. I learned what my professors had to teach, but kept most of my true beliefs to myself, to avoid the ideological gang bang that usually results when a conservative takes off the mask at an American university.
I now run the weekly newspaper of a very small town: Eclectic, Ala., where I’m free to be a conservative because most people are. However dated the concept of objectivity may be, however much the elite of the news business cast it slyly aside, I feel there’s value in balance and lack of bias. So I’m conscious in my news reporting to give both sides their say, while letting my views shine in a weekly column. This blog is an extension of that column.
I’m a husband, proud father of two, and devoted believer in family values. I hope the readers of this weblog will give me the same fair shake I strive to give the subjects of my reporting and daily interactions.
Anyone who wishes to trade barbs or backslaps, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m always anxious to expand my experiences through intelligent debate in the true spirit of tolerance and free expression.
