Thanks for the welcome. If civil society still exists in some form, I'm hoping I might find a bit of it here. As of late, Facebook feels creepy and disingenuous and within Twitter, I've found madness in 265 characters. I'm hoping this may be a more fruitful alternative. This looks like a nicely formidable place to start.
"Formidable" is a good description. And, in reply to a different question, op-eds are welcome here, but try to keep them short (my opinion). TL;DR exists for a reason.
