Oak Bay is a body of water near where I lived in Jefferson County, WA. It’s a great spot for clams, beach walks and low tide days. Port Hadlock is nearby.

Doing time in the Marines got me to pay attention to the news.

Several years after 911, I began questioning the War on Terror, Homeland Security, increased heroin trafficking, etc. I reject the idea that freedom comes from failed wars that never end.

Public policy posts Re: The Drug War, War on Terror, information suppression, and newspeople not asking questions are some of what is featured here, along with local photography.

Concerns here are not specific to any political party, personality or group identity.

I am not anti-government, anti-military or anti-law enforcement.

Best case scenario- elected officials, public agencies, & a free and independent press work together to keep people informed.

Honest management of public information is essential.
