. . . against drivel and delusion, from all sources. If you’re weary of posturing pundits, take a break! I’m weary, too, and I’ll do my best to avoid adding to the load. Instead, I’ll offer my two cents’ worth of opinion with (I hope) equal parts honesty, humility, wit–and a dash of wordplay.
Let me start with an acknowledgement: I decided to create this site after I stumbled on a blog called For What It’s Worth, by Chris Fountain, a former lawyer who now works in real estate and maintains an eclectic blogsite. Besides posting a number of informative, funny, sometimes crass, often wrong-headed (right-wing) items each day, Chris has offered advice to those who want to do their own blogging. The more time I spent reading CF’s posts and his readers’ responses, the more I thought I should do my own.
If I spend thirty minutes in the vicinity of FWIW, ten minutes are spent guffawing, groaning, growling, and rolling my eyes; ten minutes are spent composing comments in opposition to his taunting of Democrats, bureaucrats, and delusional home sellers; and ten minutes are spent contemplating a more effective counter-strategy: posting my opinions on a site of my own.
Obviously, I finally decided to launch. Wish me luck.
