Little Introductory Q and A. I would call them “Frequently Asked Questions,”


Herewith, a little introductory Q and A. I would call them “frequently asked questions,” but, truthfully, no one has asked them that I know of. So, I will call them “frequently anticipated questions,” since I suppose they might be asked by someone in the future.

Q. What’s with the name of the blog?

A. “Flank two position” is a reference to an early season 5 episode of 24, wherein the intrepid Jack Bauer kept telling his buddies at CTU (the “Counter-Terrorist Unit”), over and over again, that he was in a “flank two position,” meaning that he was transmitting to them under duress (at gunpoint in this case; isn’t that always the way?).

Unfortunately, no one at CTU picked up on the reference, and it took ahobbit to finally figure it out at the very last minute before all hell broke loose. So of course it made perfect sense to use “flank two position” for my blog.

Q. OK, but what does it have to do with your blog?

A. Nothing really. I just thought it sounded good.

Q. I wanted to use “” for a site of my own, and it would have been a lot cooler than yours, possibly including generous helpings of free pornography.

Now you have it, and you’re wasting it on things like observations about weather, your three-year old and other random junk no one but you cares about. That’s just not fair.

A. Sorry dude.

Q. Why did you leave Pith in the Wind? Also, do you write for the Nashville Sceneanymore?

A. Basically, I just got tired of writing about politics all of the time and I had sort of pigeonholed myself as a “political blogger” on PITW. I wanted to write about other things but doing so seemed out of place. As for the Scene generally, I haven’t written in a while and may not again.

It all depends on if I have something to say. They are great people though and I very much appreciate the opportunity they (especially the great Liz G.) gave me.

Q. Do you have any idea what you’re doing with this site?

A. Sort of. I’ve been spoiled by the Scene folks. There, I just logged in and posted. Here I have to run everything on my own and I’m just sort of making it up as I go along.

For instance, you’ll note that I don’t have a “blogroll,” for the simple reason that I don’t know how to make one. I do want to publicly thank Bill Hobbs, who took pity on me and took time out of his busy schedule to show me how to start this thing up. I also want to thank Blake Wylie for giving me a swift kick in the pants to get the domain name before someone else did.

Q. What are some of your favorite blogs?

A. Too numerous to mention (and, see the “blogroll” discussion above). Follow my posts and you’ll pick it up.

Q. What do you do for a living?

A. Lawyer by trade, presently practicing in the always exciting and dynamic field of employee benefits. OK, I’m reaching here with the “exciting” and “dynamic.” But it is a “field,” that much is certain.

Q. What are your politics?

A. For a very long time I considered myself to be a political conservative and still do. Others lately have begged to differ, however, considering me to be one of those naughty “moderates” we’re always hearing about.

I suspect that this is because I put a lesser value on some of the conservative hot button issues of the present, such as homosexual equality, Terri Schiavo and other usually religiously tinged issues while placing a higher value on other issues like limiting the size of government and a competent foreign policy, issues that lately don’t seem to be very interesting to the conservatives in power and the grassroots conservatives who support them. I predict that will change soon enough, but until then here I am, “moderating” away.

Q. What’s your religious affiliation?

A. United Methodist. I attend church here. Dr. Howard Olds is the Senior Pastor and his sermons are the first sermons ever in my life that I have actually looked forward to sitting down and listening to. The man is good.

Q. Who is the hottest Desperate Housewife?

A. OK, this is random, I realize. But I ran across a dippy little internet poll asking this question, and just for grins I played along with my personal choice: Bree Van De Camp. So I click through to read the results and discover that Bree is barely making a showing. Everyone’s all about Susan, Edie and Gabrielle. Even Felicity Whassername, the one who’s married to that guy from Fargo, was doing pretty well, better than Bree anyway.

And here I am voting for Bree, one of, apparently, only four or five men in America, two of whom, namely her husband and that pharmacist fellow, happen to be dead.

Now, maybe that was just a strange poll, but it occurred to me that my apparently off-the-wall choice may reveal a lot about me, though just what I don’t know. So I thought I’d share it.

Maybe someone out there will have some kind of insight into my psyche. If so, please keep it to yourself.
