Previously known as Cosmic Space, and neglected as a venue since 2014 (the ‘good old days’ when we had a sane and sensible President), this is intended to be a new and more prolific transmission of thoughts, ideas, and facts. Many of them will be political. Since November 8, 2016, a day that will live in infamy, we have been enduring an ongoing political disaster, a virtual hurricane whose winds have not subsided, a continual threat to the social infrastructure of our nation and its relationship the the world.
Despite my disuse of WordPress, I have not been silent. My Rat Now column on my own website, http://www.cosmicrat.com, numerous posts and interactions on Facebook, and a blog on Shmoozezone.com, will attest to that. But this is a time when no soapbox should remain unspoken upon, when every sane thought and caring expression should be everywhere eyes can see and minds can comprehend.
