This blog has existed for a week or two now, and I've decided it's time to re-evaluate its aims. I've been looking around exciting world of the internet (and the blogosphere in particular), and I see a lot of repeated stories. News about Israel-Lebanon gets repeated, news about the Bush administration gets repeated, and news about other hot-button issues get repeated. The problem is that most of what makes it onto the news is blog-worthy, but still centered around particular events--a journalistic bias which means that we ignore large sections of the world, important parts of our culture, and just about everything else that doesn't make it into "news" form. The goal of this blog will not be to repeat interesting news which can be found elsewhere, but rather to examine society, our worldviews, and other items of interest in ways the reader might find novel, interesting, or challenging. I will post "news", on occassion, but only if I feel that the news' importance is not being recognized, or if that news provides some insight into other areas.
