The SCIAMAGE column is a space devoted to American political and social commentary and analysis. It is unabashedly liberal, but makes every effort to present clear, verifiable facts and sound reasoning. It also makes a commitment to clearly distinguish between facts and opinions. This is something which is missing from so many other sources.
I am eclectically educated and bring this diverse perspective to the topics that are addressed. Not being a fan of self-description, I prefer to let the columns speak for themselves.
Each reader, regardless of political perspective, is invited and encouraged to comment and discuss these issues in a civil and rational manner. In addition to providing an overlooked and generally unheard perspective in America, my true hope is to spark a discussion on these issues. A discussion that goes in a new direction. A direction that will lead to solutions, rather than simply going round in the same unproductive and destructive circles that we as a country have been pursuing for far too long.
As one fan put it, the SCIAMAGE column is “Relentlessly unapologetic! Fierce in prose and poignant to the American citizen. SCIAMAGE offers a rare, eye-opening look at America as every citizen should look at it, belly up and exposed to the critical gaze of its public. SCIAMAGE, penned by a polymath of sorts, is a true liberal voice in an America too-long deaf to shouts of reason.”
Generally published every Sunday with occasional variations from that schedule.
