There once was a man from Nantucket…

First off, thanks to Glenn for prompting me to do this Poetry/Prose section of the site. It was always my aim to go beyond strictly talking politics. The main goal here is the love of America and The West and to keep that memory alive.

We are, in some respects, the equivalent of a Middle Ages monastery, keeping the light of knowledge, culture, and history alive while darkness falls outside our castle walls. And politics is by no means all that makes America and The West exceptional. There are many other avenues for expressing this.

I’m sure some people thought me the fool when I said, “I don’t give a rip if you want to be a clone of Charles Krauthammer and be a talking-head political-centric geek or offer up your best recipe for an American apple pie. The point is to celebrate America and our heritage in the face of a culture that is not only forgetting it but crapping all over it in a naive search for Utopia and ‘free stuff.'”

So send in your recipes, poems, short stories, or prose. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It just must be heartfelt and good.

About Brad Nelson

I like books, nature, politics, old movies, Ronald Reagan (you get sort of a three-fer with that one), and the founding ideals of this country. We are the Shining City on the Hill — or ought to be. However, our land has been poisoned by Utopian aspirations and feel-good bromides. Both have replaced wisdom and facts.
