In this writing workshop and citizen's blog I'm exploring various short forms, often from a satiric angle. My interests include politics, culture and the human comedy; old and new media; social theory and urban life; the commercialization, corporatization and tabloidization of everything; sustainability; Unitarianism (UU); coffee; and writing (sorry, I mean providing content). Turtle stamp is from Tandy Leather. Interested in republishing a piece? Contact drigney3@gmail.com.

The Silicon Valley Sand Dollars

The Houston Carbons (or Bulldozers)

The DFW Rightwings

The Phoenix Ashes

The Austin BioNanoBots

The San Antonio Grito

The Seattle Espresso with Limeslice

The Portland Peace

The Colorado Highs

The Kansas Kochs

The Las Vegas Investment Analysts

The Chicago Machine

The Columbus Daze

The Boston Fighting Scholars

The New York Creatives

The Wall Street Murdochs

The Long Island Commuters

The Penn-Jersey Sprawl

The Washington Corporate Lobbyists

The Atlanta Godly Constitutionalists
