At the risk of turning my first blog posting into a fraternal lovefest, I must take exception with one aspect of my brother’s characterization of me. I may be his older brother, but I can hardly claim to be his smarter brother. Indeed, I wish that I had a mastery of the literature in my academic field that was even a tenth of the mastery he has of his field’s literature.
Be that as it may, I’m thrilled to be here on Keywords for my debut in the world of blogging. I hope that my perspectives will be of interest to the loyal readership. If readers are shocked that I read The Economist, they will surely be even more shocked to know that I occasionally enjoy browsing over to Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish. But I am sure the readers are happy to engage all reasoned arguments, and I look forward to reading their comments over the next couple of months.
