As you might gather, I intend for my blog posts to be heavy on reporting instead of just being rants. Lots of people on the Internet have opinions, and too few have facts. So, my goal here is to present information that people need to make up their minds on issues. But that means that it will be a few days between posts. So here is what will be coming over the next week or two.
My next book, 500 Days, is going on sale on Tuesday, and it has lot of never-before-disclosed details about the Bush Administration and the terror wars. I will be posting something on Sunday that discloses some of the most jaw-dropping information.
After that, I will be digging into who—if anyone—among the politically-obsessed review information before they start raging. And I’ll keep you in suspense for now about how I’m going to establish that.
My longer posting after that will be what I like to call “God’s Frauds – Or, Why Don’t Bible Thumpers Read the Bible?” I am someone with a lot of knowledge about the words, meaning and history of the Bible, and I have been horrified over the years to watch the Christian Right pervert scriptures in order to justify their hatreds and ignorance. So, we will be doing a little Biblical examination. I know what the outcome of that one will be already: These people have no idea what the Bible says. Not that they interpret it badly, they have no idea what it says. They seem to have a greater familiarity with the Harry Potter books than with the Bible. (In fact, I have a delicious anecdote that reflects that.) Anyway, if you have ever found yourself in a fruitless argument with a Born-Again conservative evangelical, you’ll want to read this one.
So, keep checking in here. And let me know if there is a topic you want me to research. If it captures my interest, I will.
