Having put the matter to a practical test, I know that I will not be hired to work the netroots side of any presidential campaign. But I still worry about offending people, believe or not. I would resent it if that timidity put some of the most interesting discussions and some of the most heterogeneous parties out of reach. The subjects I was taught not to bring up in polite conversation are the staples of blogging and would be a loss to my blogging fun if I just never took them up. So I am going to try to keep it more comfortable here in the Thong by opening up another place to talk about sacred [or not] things.
Its an experiment.
