I have been posting on this blog since 2005 and running it for last several years. It has been a labor of love, but I have decided that it is a burden I can no longer afford. I need to divert more of my time to my scholarly pursuits.
I have established a new blog: Natural Right and Biology. Beginning immediately, that is where most of my blogging time will be spent. I invite all of my readers to check out the new blog and, if you are interested, join in the discussion. There will be political topics, to be sure; but the focus will be much narrower.
I won't close this one down just yet. I probably will post from time to time. I will try to interest others to take up the torch, but I am not optimistic about that. I am rather sad about this. I flatter myself and my SDP colleagues in believing that this has been a significant contribution to the local blogosphere. I am very grateful to those readers who have frequently participated.
