I envision this blog to be a forum for discussing Life, the Universe, and Everything. I place an especial emphasis on the ideals of freedom and choice because I believe they are fundamental for a fair and just democratic society. My posts may be about anything, but I will try to tie them to these concepts whenever possible. I welcome your thoughts and views. We can all expand our knowledge, ideas, and imagination together; I hope this blog can be a springboard for original thought. Enjoy!
