    Howdy! New to the Boards

    Hi,

    I'm a retired Army officer who has continued my service as a teacher in an under-privileged public school. I've been following the threads on this forum for a while and thought it might be a good place to throw out some thoughts now and then. I shy away from the personal politics that comes from both sides. However, I love looking at ideas and issues. That's where the fun of politics is for me.

    Hope to intellectually spar with many of you in the time to come.
