I’m Out

Filed in Delaware by on January 6, 2017

It’s been a fun ride, one that started with me just looking to learn more about this state that I had just moved to, but seemed so politically insular. I learned alot along the way, some history but especially how easy it was to push some local political buttons. Even better, I made alot of friends that I would not have otherwise, including people who wanted to talk about better integrity from governments that didn’t seem interested in that. There’s more of those folks than you might imagine — in government and out — and they’ve helped me to be able to provide sunshine on issues that just got whispered about. Some of those folks are commenters and most are lurkers and I want all of you to know that I still share your interests and will still be looking for smarter decisions and better accountability — perhaps now on a broader playing field.

Pandora and I have been talking about leaving for awhile, and as she well knows, there is a long list of folks who have been asking both of us why we were still here, rather than branching off to our own project. And volunteering to be the second class citizen in this space that I made a serious investment in is not an option. This is more vital to me now that we have a Federal government that will be looking to codify that second class status and I need to find the people who will seriously fight with me to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Many of you know that Thurgood Marshall was a relative of mine. I come from a long line of people who fought like hell for every bit of privilege and freedom I have. I can’t be party to giving up a single inch of that; and making “allies” feel better about themselves is not my job. So you can find me writing, commenting and organizing for more responsive representation here at Blue Delaware now — hope to see some of my friends there and hope to make some new ones there as well!

I leave this place the way I found it — the Boys Club.
