SharedEmergency is here for a number of reasons. First, the traditional media is failing the American public, and many stories and issues are ignored. Next, I discuss ideas and issues by also advancing potential solutions, so I am not just identifying a topic, but trying to constructively add to the voice of those seeking resolution of the problem. Third, I have ideas and like to write and broadcast in the "new media." Lastly, but most importantly, this blog is devoted to my son and his children, who I hope will inherit a better world.
