a warning to all 

Though I don't think I'm well suited for elected office, I'd say it's more likely than not that I'll work in government at some point in my life as some kind of technocrat. There's also an outside chance that I'll need a security clearance for a job or two.

Now I haven't written anything on here that I would completely disavow--a few things have been logically screwy or factually wrong--but I have written things that could be broadly construed as inflamatory. ("Daddy Brooklyn hates Republicans" is a nice example.)
This might cause me some trouble later in life given that there are many projects underway to archive the Internet. While this may be useful for historians, I'm a little worried that in 20 years a bunch of bloggers are going to be shut out of important positions in government by impertinent political muckrakers who have access to Internet archives and thus access to a lot of writings that may be defensible, but aren't exactly politically palatable.

Is anyone else a little bit worried? I'm pretty sure the CIA will comb through your blog postings before hiring you.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
