As witnesses and reporters of various kinds of U.S. and world events, amateur independent journalists are a kind of modern-day “Watchmen” but without the superhero aspects. “Amateur” means we are not paid professionals. “Independent” means we are not associated with any news agencies.

I write about a wide-range of subjects – including but not limited to: Government and Political Issues, Religion and Spiritual Issues, Health and Science Issues, Science Fiction and other kinds of Entertainment such as Music Videos.

I sometimes monitor CNN, FOX News, and MSNBC on TV, while checking the Google News feed online and searching Google News for news stories about certain issues or subjects, and for updates on major news stories. I also sometimes monitor news sources via Twitter. Most editorial articles are about my reactions to major news stories – my opinions, as well as specific government and political issues.

I’m a Centrist Independent unaffiliated voter in politics.

I’m a Spiritual Universalist in Religion.
