I know it's been quite a while since I posted here, but after a couple of run-ins with a person who was threatening to report me for spam (and, from all indications, may not be here any longer; apologies if I'm wrong), I decided to lay low for awhile posting my buddy David 2's weekly on-line commentaries, entitled BRUTALLY HONEST.
I was also plugging his weekly Internet radio show of the same name in the commentaries, but the show came to an end (for now) back in November when the station that carried the show, ShockNet Radio, went off the air.
For those unfamiliar, David 2 is a long-time on-line friend of mine. He is a small-l (or, as he puts it, a practical) libertarian and has written the commentary since April 1996. You can learn more about him on the right-side column of his page.
I've returned to the Nexus, and in an effort to catch up, here's the commentaries that have been published since the last one of July 29, 2013:

David's commentaries appear each Monday morning. I will resume posting them here on Mondays. Thanks for reading.
a couple of run-ins with a person who was threatening to report me for spam
I don't know if the admins would consider it spam.
But it helps to have it personalized. Is there a particular commentary that means more to you? And why?
I don't think they would either, but it shook me enough (and it shouldn't have) to take an extended break. He's no longer here and the comments he left have been deleted.
Are you talking about a commentary from this batch I posted?
