Welcome to garmonbozia!

Hello, and welcome to my new blog!  This space will focus primarily on politics and law, as well as science and religion when they affect politics and law.  There will also be the occasional post on entertainment media (mostly video games), and of course, anything I happen to feel like ranting about on any given day.  Blogs that I read with some regularity and that have served as inspiration for this one include:

Glenn Greenwald at Salon
Balloon Juice
Whiskey Fire
Rising Hegemon
Unqualified Offerings
gin and tacos
The NonSequitur
Sadly, No!
World O' Crap
...and others.

If you're familiar with those blogs, what you can expect from me is a hackneyed attempt at a blend of mimicry of those far-superior sites.  Those sites are also where I will become aware of a number of the items that I comment upon here, and I will try to remember to throw out hat-tips where appropriate.

I'd also like to mention my friends at the now-defunct tsujigiri (formerly Corpse Divine), who were the original inspiration to start my own.  Thanks, guys!

While I'll try to provide some unique and insightful commentary here, I'm new at this, so bear with me.  I imagine it's going to be a rocky start, but hopefully I'll still be able to inform and entertain as I learn the ropes. In the meantime, welcome and enjoy!

UPDATE: I can't believe that I neglected to mention my dear old friend The Bastard Himself.  I hope that my starting up this blog helps to inspire him to get back to updating his a little more regularly again.
