Well, I'm waiting for Mikey to post to answer that, Sal. He has quite a different view of this war thing than I do.
Yes, it's wartime. It seems like having a place to vent right at the beginning of it would be a good thing. And trust me, if Mikey gets involved, there'll be quite a bit of debating.
And Rene, the Blog thing has become quite common web parlance. I'm just entering that game late. (As are you, apparently.)
PS--Thanks to David for relinking me. Sheesh. I thought I had it bookmarked! :-)
