This blog is what I want it to be about. For the most part I write about current public issues and sometimes I tie them in with my own personal experiences. Other times I write about my own life and health. I spent about half my working life as a newspaper reporter (save a few months as a radio station reporter) on relatively small daily newspapers and weekly newspapers and the other half as a truck driver, along with three years in the Army. I’ve also done some other types of work. For a time I was not able to work because I have what appears to be a treatable, but incurable type of cancer, known as Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia — I write about WM occasionally as well. I am currently working as a truck driver, but not sure how long I will be able to continue. Comments are welcome.
