COMMENTARY ARCHIVE

This archive consists of ┬ácommentaries I wrote years ago, many of which were published in a local magazine at the time. Some were still in the que to be published when one of the satirical pieces upset a law firm/major advertiser, and my column was cut. I thought about calling these “Not So Serious Commentary” because, although the subject matter was serious, my approach was somewhat light hearted and satirical. Unfortunately I seem to have mostly lost even that bit of cynical, ironical sense of humor with which I once approached our political and social milieu. Now, I’ll just call them “Commentary”, and my more recent observations I have put under ‘Posts’. Though these are somewhat dated, they are still useful, if for no other reason than historical background to today’s problems.
