And so, these are the first of many words I hope to write for NLT. It seems only proper to pause for a brief moment and publicly extend my humble gratitude for the privilege of contributing my voice alongside the esteemed fellows of the Ashbrook Center. To Dr. Schramm, then - the first among equals - I offer my thanks.
To my new blogging cohorts and all those who frequent these fine pages, I hope to make a happy home of sorts amongst you in our little corner of the world. I'll try not to burn popcorn, play obnoxiously loud music or otherwise steer astray our common ship of state.
To a hopeful voyage, then, and a distant horizon. Ahoy!
