my own little corner to set up a soap box.

well, here i am. a blog. i've had websites, and i've banged around on the web, but this is a first.
howdy. i'm bo the nook, and yes, i am a nuke. i work at a research reactor. i get to do some of the coolest things you can think of, and they pay me. doesn't get much better than that.
today's rant:
getting a bit tired of the lack of civility i've encountered lately. i know folks have a bad day, and they need to vent. do it myself. but there seems to be a pervasive fog of incivility (is that a word?) in a lot of the interactions i have with folks of late. is it me? i wash my feet, and take daily showers. i try to accept people for what and who they are. i only cork off when someone says something that is patently misguided, or intentionally offensive. must be the political season. too bad. there are folks out there in the big world with experiences and values different than mine. i'd like to learn from them, but it's impossible to do so if there is not at least a modicum of civility to allow the exchange of ideas and information.
i should also point out that i can be a raving butthead myself, and i recognize the fact that nobody will be aiming sainthood recommendations in bo the nook's direction any time soon.

Way to go!

Can't wait to read more, nook. Good thing you don't still live in France. Incivility here is rampant. ;-)

Oh, and may I link to your new blog?
