In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Fighting the good fight

I've been at this for a long time, first as a journalist going back 45 years, and as the publisher of this web site, which turned 15 years of age on October 1.

Sometimes I wonder if its too long.

I get up at 4 a.m. each day to work on the current edition of Capitol Hill Blue and a hyperlocal news site/blog called Blue Ridge Muse. By 8 a.m., when most people are starting work, I've already put in a half-day.

And for what? Neither site makes money. I dig into my own pocket each month to cover the expenses and my resources are not unlimited.

I’ve been at this for a long time, first as a journalist going back 45 years, and as the publisher of this web site, which turned 15 years of age on October 1.

Sometimes I wonder if its too long.

I get up at 4 a.m. each day to work on the current edition of Capitol Hill Blue and a hyperlocal news site/blog called Blue Ridge Muse. By 8 a.m., when most people are starting work, I’ve already put in a half-day.

And for what? Neither site makes money. I dig into my own pocket each month to cover the expenses and my resources are not unlimited.

I’ve always said that Capitol Hill Blue is a labor of love. Unrequited love at best. Sometimes, more like a Shakespearean tragedy. I don’t know if I own this site or it owns me.

Yet I keep doing and I will keep doing, even with the headaches and the pain-in-the-butts who create daily challenges. I’ll keep doing even with those who find constant fault.

Because I love it.

God knows why.

But I do.
