This thing started as a combined sort of new-year’s resolution between Derrick and Logan who are brothers-in-law. Logan studied Political Science in college, and Derrick teaches English to students at a community college. Both are avid readers and enjoy having lengthy, intelligent conversations. A blog seemed like an obvious project.
There is no established subject. Why should there be? We are interested in politics and culture and religion and literature and philosophy and video games and cabbages and kings. The idea is to have intelligent conversations, even with oneself (maybe especially with oneself!). Comments that thwart this goal will be deleted. Comments that further it will have a special place in our hearts.
