It's time..... get back in the fray.

True, the daily news from the political, economic, education fronts is dire, but I'm not succumbing to the conceit of publishing my so-called insights and reporting to the daily pulse of events.  Here, BobOnARoll focuses mostly on solutions and the path forward, perhaps with some connect-the-dots news synthesis in the mix.  My old boss Marty Peretz once characterized me as "skeptical about enthusiasms", and it's a 'compliment' I relish.  BobOnARoll is about anti the orthodoxy of the Left and the Right.  You'll often find me on the opposite side of what Nancy Pelosi is in favor of, but you will always find me on the opposite side of what Bachmann, Perry, and Palin are in favor of (well, perhaps 95% of the time).

I'm going to write about personal passions too, as I did before----opera, theater, and other performing arts; food; travel; and people I admire.  Not always in that order.

More serious this time about building audience for this blog.  You can help by linking this URL to your website, or tweeting about something you like---or don't.  Tell a friend or colleague.  And share the magic.  :)

  1. Glad you are back Bob! I've missed you. Let me know how "growing the audience" goes and tips if you will. I had a newspaper article about the cancer blog and the bump up in readership was smaller than I thought it would be.
