This site’s been created in the hope that knowledge is power, and the
certainty that ignorance is its antithesis. It’s mainly a compilation
of information and insight from various sources that I thought worth
I’ll be tossing in my overvalued two cents, as well (denoted
by asterisks). That said, I’d like to think I’m smart enough to know
what I don’t know, and that I’ll make that clear when necessary.
I’m happy to hear from folks. Disagreement is welcome, but only if
it’s civil. You can be as vociferous as you wish, but personal attacks
will simply be flushed as soon as they’re apparent.
Let’s do the mensch thing.
Make sense? If so, you can leave a comment or reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
And a note on DEMOCRACY NOW! posts:
I may be stating the obvious, but it’s a good idea to check the DN!
Headlines every weekday.
There’s a link to them at the top right of each segment I post, and of
course you can go to http://www.democracynow.org on the rare days when
I don’t have anything from the program.
And in addition to what’s here, I occasionally receive responses to my comments at sites such as Common Dreams, The Real News Network and the FAIR Blog, which I reply to.
If you’re interested in those, just click on the page link and search on “Doug Latimer” in the comments section to read them.
I also have a Facebook page
Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll find it worth your while.
ADDED 10/27/11 — THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES page, where I park aphorisms et alia that I think are worth their own separate space.
See if you agree.
5/10/15 — Lately, I’ve been including a good bit of health and nutrition intel here, and I do see it intimately related to the other issues extant.
The posts on the duplicity and venality of food and medical corps provide obvious parallels, but I also want to focus on what we can do to improve our health, as we can’t follow our principles as assiduously as we’re obligated to if we’re not in the best condition we can be.
That said, I want to be clear that I’m no expert in these fields. I’m trying to learn, and unlearn, what I need to do to be healthy. In doing so, I may wander down some dead ends. I present this information with the entreaty that you accord it both serious consideration and scrutiny.
What makes seeming sense today may be disproved tomorrow. What appears outlandish in the present could well be validated in the future.
I hope what I pass along will be of benefit to you.
