Introducing Hot Potato|
Statement of Purpose
1997 June 11|
Hot Potato will be published Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 1100 and 1200 Greenwich Mean Time (UTC for you purists) for as long as it's fun or profitable. I'll keep it short because reading on-line is expensive and hard on the eyes.
I'm a card-carrying liberal and not ashamed of it, although I don't accept all of the liberal dogma. I was born in America but I've lived for seven years in Amsterdam, so I bring you an expatriate's view of America. I read the best Dutch daily newspaper, NRC Handelsblad. It offers a point of view that you won't find in the Times. I surf a fair bit. In the past I've been a photographer, yacht delivery captain, sailmaker, boat designer and builder, political hack, child welfare social worker, transportation manager, real estate consultant, computer programmer, project manager, writer, and Web designer.
My aim is simply to offer thought-provoking ideas on a wide range of topics. I'll start Friday with a series of articles: "Where Did All the Money Go? The Impoverishment of America." That should give you plenty of food for thought.
