I don’t like weblogs. I find them pretentious, obnoxious, and egotistical. Not all of us should have access to make our opinions public. As such, I refused for as long as I could to write a weblog. I stuck with more traditional means of expressing my views on current events: submitting articles to op-ed editors, sending commentaries and analyses to newspapers and magazines. Some were published, some were not.
Recently (beginning of 2013), however, after a series of disappointments with fellow journalists and their ardent impetus to show everyone around how right they are about everything, and after trying in vain to argue for the educational value of mass media and being told that what matters is financial survival and giving the readers what they want, I decided to give in and make my own weblog, not to add to the general cacophony, but to at least try to offer some clarity.

In case you find me “fascinating,” there is always more on me on my profile website. In case you don’t, no hard feelings.
