A New Frock to Brighten Your Day

Welcome to the all new Inside, Looking Out!

I started this site in early 2004 mostly as a writing exercise, but now, three long years it has turned into something more. I’d like to thank everyone for taking the time to visit, it means a lot to me. If you find the site at least a little bit interesting, entertaining or informative, then I will continue on with my little “writing exercise.”

You may have noticed that the site has a new home at http://inlookout.com/site. After almost 4 years, I decided the site finally deserved its own domain. Be sure to update your bookmarks!

It also has a completely new look. The old design was starting to feel a bit dated and was in desperate need of a makeover. I’ve added new features and content, and have organized the layout a bit. New items include…

  • A Latest Gallery area in the upper right showcasing the newest gallery
  • An Oldies But Goodies section in the middle column featuring posts from the past
  • A new Library page that will (soon) feature some of my fiction writing
  • A Share It! link at the bottom of each story, letting you share this link with other sites

I’ve also moved the Recent Posts and Comment to the bottom of the page.

One of the features I am really excited about is Share It! Clicking on the link will let you share that story with other websites, bringing more people to Inside, Looking Out. So if you like the story, Share It!

As usual, all feedback and comments are welcome., Just click on the comments link in the upper right of each story. I am always interested in what you have to say.

Check out this video portrait of future Republican leadership by Max Blumenthal. While I am not sure it is entirely representative of the right-leaning youth in this country, it is a veritable slice of it.

Be sure to watch for Tom DeLay in the video… it’s priceless.

Feedback positive and negative, is of course, encouraged.

Simply Amazing!

Kitten Update: Adam is Doing Well….

general 1 Comment »

A few weeks ago I posted a story on a kitten that was found burning alive in small cage in Sonoma County north of San Francisco. As a cat owner, and a concerned human being, I have been anxiously following the story, and I am happy to report that Adam is now doing very well considering all that he has been through. While he still needs more surgery this week, he is doing all the things kittens do and that’s a very good sign.

And on an equally sunny note, two girls in relation to this incident were charged with killing, maiming or abusing an animal, and will be appearing in juvenile court today.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer pair of teenagers, let me tell you.
