Junk Drawers

I hope everyone had a great 2022, and it ended with a very peaceful & memorable holiday season. Over the holidays, I had plenty of down time here at home and in my home office.

What the Media Wants You to Think About

What the Media Wants You to Think About September, 2022 I found a great quote while putting this blog together. “Mass media doesn’t tell you what to think, but it tells you what to think about”. This is from Stanley J Baran’s definition of Agenda Setting. With this in mind, here are

Agnostically Contrarian
