This is Jon Rowe and I am going to be a new blogger here. But I am not alone. The One Best Way (formerly Positive Liberty, a blog eaten up by the technology monster) is merging with this blog. (Yes, like what corporations do.)
As listed on my profile, I am a community college professor and attorney with JD, MBA, and LLM graduate degrees. I don’t practice much. Just teach and blog. I have written a little for “real,” in print publications (I’m always in the market to write if interested); but find blogging much easier to get my voice out. 🙂
I’m a political libertarian with a wide variety of eccentric interests. Though I have acquired a vast knowledge of religion and the American Founding (especially as it relates to the personal religious beliefs of the American Founders and those who influenced them).
I realize this is a “public affairs” blog and as such I will tend to publish here on the American Founding/religion as it relates to more “current” concerns. I have another group blog American Creation where all we do is study the history of religion and the American Founding from a variety of perspectives (over there we have non-believers, Mormons, evangelical Protestants, traditional Roman Catholics and Unitarian Universalists as posters and commenters; we “check” eachother in a way that I would argue is as good as any scholarly peer review process; indeed I see this “checking” process as one of the larger virtues of the blogsphere in general).
Finally, everything I publish I archive on my personal blog. When Positive Liberty went down, I was happy I kept my archive.
