Raison d’être

The municipality where I live is an endlessly fascinating place. Sitting right next to the nation’s capital, Montgomery features family farms dating from the 18th century, as well as some of the world’s most advanced biological engineering enterprises. The county government, with a budget that is the envy of some states, produces sophisticated and expensive programs, as well as some of the silliest legislation you could imagine. It’s also a place where wealthy people subsidize their hobbies and artistic passions by taxing the less well off. I founded this weblog to chronicle and observe the wrestling match between civil society and activist government, and publicize and examine the consequences of that conflict.

  1. Hello, and thanks for your piece on our struggle. Can’t imagine why I haven’t come across your site before–yours is the best-written, most even-handed (without pulling any punches) summary there has been. Who are you, friend? : )
