Personally, I don’t like any of the candidates, nor much about the political process. Please check out Andy’s work at his site (http://ihnatko.com ).

Notes on contacting me and privacy.

This is a blog. Blogs thrive on and exist by the grace of open commenting.
If you post a comment, it will go up. If there is privacy endangering info, I will edit it, but the post will still go up. The only posts I remove are spam posts.

If you need to contact me privately, there are prominent links above, and to the left. Use them, that’s why they are there.

I am still working out the exact wording of the Tattooed Dad privacy policy. I can however sum it up in plain english: Your information will never be shared, used or abused. Not sold, not bought, not masturbated over.

I loathe IOPs and will not allow it here.
