“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 originally set this site up to rant about the Bush administration. During the Obama years, I switched mostly to writing about software and pop culture. I haven’t, so far, written about the foul homunculus now crapping in the Oval Office, because that would consume my every waking moment. Sticking with software is better for my mental health.
