You know when you read an article on a popular site and the first 20 or 30 people who read it try to be the first one who post? That’s kind of weird.  You just read this thoughtful, insightful piece on malnourished children in third-world countries (why don’t we ever hear about second-world countries? Where are they anyway?) and the first 20 or so posts are people trying to beat each other to the punch and you have a page full of “FIRST!”.  Or the popular alternative, “FRIST!”

So this is my first real post on a real blog. My intentions are to update regularly, but, honestly, who has the time? Between the family obligations, work, and all the good shows on TV, how can one be expected post all the time? So check back often, but I make no guarantees.

That’s it for today!
