I'm frequently asked about my motivation for obsessively sharing thoughts, opinions and images online. "There's no money in it," my astonished critics often complain. They're missing the point. A significant portion of the good things that have crossed my path in the past couple years have come as a direct result of my online postings. Yesterday, for example, I was delighted to interview Noel Gourdin for There Stands the Glass. His ballad "The River" is my favorite song of 2008. I'm also very proud of Plastic Sax, my Kansas City jazz site. As for this place- well, I suppose I'll let it live.
