Look out traditional newspapers, Dave's back to blog! I've been going through withdrawals not being able to blog the last four days.
So much is happening in the world that I have to blog on it. It's time for opinions, snappy images, jokes, optical illusions, news items, and so much more.
I see my column last Sunday (3/8/09) has got people talking in cyberspace and that four different blogs have picked it up. One of those blogs, WatchPaul, seemed to think I was day-dreaming about pot legalization. Rose pointed out that my column was all "hearts and flowers" etc.
First off, I want to thank Rose, and everyone else, who gave input on my legalization column. The T-S Topix thread got a lot of responses to my column. Some people thought I was nuts. However, if you read those comments you'll notice that the majority seem to agree with my position on legalizing pot.
Not that that matters. When I give an opinion I expect people won't always agree with me. That's really okay. I just like having honest input, pro or con. Oh yeah...you may be right Rose...about me being all happy about the prospect of legalization. Should I have lengthened the column and talked about all the possible problems and side-effects of legalization?
I don't think so. I stayed on point for a reason. To make an impact. There's plenty of naysayers out there willing to conjure up all kinds of reasons why legalization wouldn't work. I hear what Rose is saying, and respect her opinion. I hope that is a two-way street.
Time to open the door to my muse for the day...it's great being back!
