There are many reasons why people use a pen-name. For me, it is simply a way of keeping two parts of my life separate. I still plan on writing as if everyone reading my words were in the same room with me.
I welcome comments, suggestions and corrections. I will delete profanity, inappropriate remarks, off-topic comments and any other nonsense. It is, after all, my blog. If you are not OK with the above, please find another website for your rants. There is a lot of room on the Internet. With so many options, your right to free speech should be expressed somewhere.
