Guidelines and terms of reference for this blog

1) If you don't appreciate wit, humor, irony, sarcasm, parody, satire, laughter, and other forms of coming to grips with the sorry state of affairs we find ourselves in, you probably reflect "mainstream" thinking in Brunswick, whether you realize it or not.

2) If that describes you, welcome aboard. We have numerous voices and sources telling us that "Brunswick will continue it's remarkable growth" and other versions of "Brunswick is perfect," even if there is much reason to challenge such claims. Because we hope to get to the truth of our circumstances, we invite your informed commentary. If, on the other hand, you do appreciate those elements, bring it on, Baby! We can all use the laughs!

3) Let me be clear; I intend to publish straightforward criticism and analysis of the status quo and those who sustain it, prolong it, and otherwise refuse to recognize reality. If you want happy sunshine, complacency, and self-absorption blown into your bodily orifices, you should look elsewhere. Here you will find the antidote for such "happy-happy talkin' happy talk." And hopefully, a smirk, a smile, or a laugh.

4) Posting privileges are available to readers. It will be granted at my discretion, and the rules for contributions will be "moderate." I have been known to speak frankly when I deemed it necessary; the general rule will be that if I find your post within the limits of my personal taste, it will be published.

If it goes beyond even those bounds and my personal tastes, than you may be 86'ed without explanation. Don't like it? Start your own blog.
