In the poll I put up, about half of you did not want me to post.
I go back-and-forth in my own mind about how much to contribute to the blog, how much to join in discussions, and so on. On the one hand, I think you have a right to know “where I am coming from,” especially since I think transparency is superior to trying to pretend we have “completely objective” viewpoints. On the other, I can take many different positions on different business or political issues; moreover, I do not want you to think I am grading your political philosophy even when I agree or disagree with you.
So, there is not an ideal solution, I have found. But I do appreciate your votes in the poll (it was 5-4 against, by the way).

And, here is just an interesting piece about how rural-urban and gerry-mandering are structural features of our politics. It includes this interesting map of counties shaded and sized by population and voting record. It shows how there are more “blue’ votes concentrated in some areas, but how that doe not translate into votes due to the ways we draw congressional districts.
