Well, I've finally done it. After many years of vacillating, I've decided to create my own little blog. I've been getting shamed into doing it when I'm occasionally in the chat room while watching The Ed Morrissey Show at my favorite news and commentary site, Hotair.
I really didn't seriously start reading blogs much until the Rathergate scandal was unearthed and reported by the lawyers at Powerline. From there I discovered the wonderful world of very intelligent reporting and commentary by people who were not in the mainstream media.
I'm not sure where this is going to go yet, but eventually I think I'll get some direction here. It may become an aviation, political, current events or all the above.
So I guess I should introduce myself a bit. I'm an older than dirt engineer in the aviation field. I'm a Yankee from Pennsylvania and have lived and worked around the world, and finally settled (at least for the time being in Western Tennessee. The title of my blog is a take on the line from the Wizard of Oz, "Lions and Tigers and Bears, On My." Think of it as redneck logic.
I'll be posting as events and the spirit moves me. So welcome to my world
Update: I've opened the comments section to everyone for now and they are encouraged. A little bit of advice though. Please keep comments relevant, on topic, and non-abusive. Disagreement with my views is perfectly ok, but a comment like I got yesterday from "anonymous" read: "You're a fucking moron". Those comments will get your comment deleted and you banned. Thanks!
