Welcome, everyone, to Ramblings from the Motor City!
I decided to start this blog to create a forum where I can express my thoughts and opinions on topics that I find interesting, and that I hope you will too.
I can remember back in the early days of my corporate career (early to mid 1990s), when e-mail was really beginning to grow in popularity, and my colleagues would spend our downtime at work exchanging messages regarding the issues of the day, such as affirmative action, the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, the state of hip-hop music, etc. I recall how much fun we used to have with these exchanges. With this blog, I hope to re-capture the spirit of those e-mail exchanges with a wider audience in mind.
As for the topics I'll cover in this blog, pretty much anything goes! However, as an African-American male, I have a particular interest in what's going on in my particular community, especially in the Detroit area. Nevertheless, my interests are as wide as the day is long, and I'm sure that over time, this forum will find its voice.
