When Anne Hannan called me and asked if I would write a monthly column for WindCheck, I thought it would be fun to write about a variety of things going on around Long Island Sound. When my wife heard about it, she said, “Great. They’ve given you a soapbox to stand on.”
I therefore make the promise that I will do my best not to pontificate. I will, however, offer my personal thoughts on a variety of topics — that’s what an editorial column is all about. All of you readers may not agree with my point of view on everything, so I urge you to write in if you have a differing point of view. Discussion, and even disagreement, are a healthy thing for our sport. Look at what Scuttlebutt has created.
