It has been a couple months since my last post. I have been traveling, vacationing, and working some crazy hours the last couple of months, and did not have the time to commit to writing; but not to worry, I will be resuming my writing within the next week. I look forward to the encouragement, criticism, debate, agreement, and so on from all you who read my blog. Unfortunately Tuesday Topic Live will not be resuming, but we may potentially do special broadcasts to address certain issues. However, my blog, “The Double Edge,” will feature several guest writers, some of who appeared on Tuesday Topic Live. So add me to your feed reader, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and whatever else. Thanks for the continued support and engagement.
