A thousand points of view

Time for a little self-indulgence here -- the 1,000th post in just under three years.

This blog has evolved from its original stated goal as a "vehicle to rant about the outrages perpetrated on a daily basis by the Armies of the Right to distort, demean and cheapen the quality of life in the United States."

No one can stay that outraged that long and not have a coronary -- particularly when it doesn't seem to do any good in changing the behavior patterns in Washington. So call this the formal transformation to a kinder, gentler but by no means more conservative blog.

It's also a good time to thank what appears to be a growing readership. Even if it's not always true, as Sally Field once said that "you like me, you really, really like me," I appreciate the readership -- and the challenges -- even the ones that seem to come out of the right wing manual.

Intelligent debate never hurt anyone.

So now on to the next 1,000 posts. Some will continue to be rants aimed at my favorite right wing targets. Many others will be aimed at the players who comprise the political and media power structure of Massachusetts and the nation.

I'm still not a Red Sox or Patriots fan and won't become one. But I will also continue to yell in the direction of anyone who will listen: Beat LA!
