Call Off the Search Parties

What happened?  It feels like it’s been a year since my last post.  No need to call search and rescue.  I’m still here… just a bit busy.

“What in the world,” you ask, “could keep you away from your blog?”  There is so much fodder for discussion:

  • Healthcare [ahem] reform.
  • Schenectady County’s new requirement of chain restaurants to display calorie counts on their menus.
  • More Gov. Paterson scandal.
  • Budgetary gridlock in Albany.
  • Proposals to regulate salt usage within New York restaurants.
  • Scott Murphy’s waffling on the healthcare bill.
  • Proposed state park closures in NY.
  • and so on…

Poof.  [Imagine a mushroom cloud appearing over my head.]  Indeed, there is so much more to discuss than time to write about it.  Between grad school writing and press releases for Patrick Ziegler’s congressional campaign, I’ve been busy.

But that’s no excuse.  I will endeavor to do better with the blog.  I am setting up interviews with ordinary citizens who show us what it means to be extraordinary.  Those profiles will be an important part of this blog.  In addition, I will be finishing my series on “Defining the Ordinary Citizen,” and I will start a series detailing the history of the Albany Tea Party rallies.

Please stay tuned.

    I believe that we desperately need to hear the stories of Ordinary Citizens who make a difference in our lives, our communities and our world.

    Why not be Ordinary?

    Why not make a difference?

    Why not be Ordinary AND make a difference?
