A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. Well, here is my first baby step. I want to start with a good impression, so I am trying to choose my topic as well as my words carefully.
As a public speaker, we are told to start off with a funny story or a joke. So here goes.... This guy walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder. Oh… so you heard that one already. OK, how about… A Priest, a Rabbi and an Imam are stranded on a desert island. Ohhh.. You know that one too??
Well, then maybe I should just go on to the Topics of this Blog. That should be quite easy. Some time ago my daughter Susie suggested to me that I start a Blog. She said, "Dad, you like to write and you are good at it, and you always have opinions about everything, so I think that you should start a Blog." I thought about it, did some research, and when I found out what a "Blog" was, I decided to do it.
Of course I ran into the dreaded "What Topics am I Going to Write About"! I looked around and found that there are oodles of Political Blogs out there, so Politics was out. I decided to choose less controversial topics like Religion, Family, UFOs etc... At this point I took a Steno Pad and carried it around with me jotting down topics that intrigued me, maddened me, puzzled me and mainly what railed at my "Logical Mind". Then when I accumulated all these interesting topics, I sat down to review the choices to write my very first Blog Post.
I ticked off the topics one by one... NO - that's Politics, that one is also a NO - it's Politics, the next one is a NO - Politics again.... Hmmm... looking down my whole list, it seemed that the nexus of all my vexations fixated on Politics. O.K., let's try this again, and I repeated the exercise again. Upon review, I was staring at the same result. Politics, Politics, POLITICS...
So my Logical Mind came to a swift conclusion. I'll start with Politics, then I'll segue into the other topics later. So for now, Politics it is.
As for the name of this Blog, I hope that it is self explanatory. I mentioned that I am logical (Mr. Spock being my role model), and what I see all around me tends toward the frustratingly illogical. I will, therefore, give you my analysis of various topics utilizing flawless logic backed by research, thereby presenting the Truth as logic dictates.
Get ready World, prepare to be enlightened!
P.S. Since I tend to sometimes use words that may befuddle some readers, I will endeavor to link those words to instant translation, as in this sentence.
