Hello world!

Here we go–this blog space was claimed three years ago, but never populated.   Kinda like a land rush, claim filed and then nothing  but procrastination on building the house.  But like so many others in the virtual world, I think there might be some things worth writing down.  At least for me to work out thoughts on those subjects that matter to me–education,  popular culture, media, and maybe some forays into contemporary global social issues.   But I do not claim expert status or expect much in the way of impact or influence of my posts.   So read if you want, and do not expect any sort of obsessive updates.
