“Welcome to Sherwood.”
That’s Erroll Flynn’s line after swinging out of the trees on a long vine and landing atop a great boulder in the wonderful 1939 film The Adventures of Robin Hood. As the title character, he is addressing the murderous Sir Guy and the lovely, but naive, Maid Marion, whom he and his band of merry men have just captured. This is a great tale of the underdog taking on powerful scoundrels and having fun doing it. And that’s more or less what I hope this blog will be.
I’m a liberal… and becoming more liberal every day. I don’t like the way powerful interests have gained control of our government and our media, marginalizing the rest of us. This site is my small (minute) way of fighting back.
When Maid Marion accuses Robin of speaking treason, he replies, “Fluently.” I hope to be fluent. But my focus will not just be politics. In fact, now that Obama is in the White House, I’m more likely to write about software, movies, sports, and other topics.
So, “Welcome to Sherwood.”
