I promised I’d never get into politics or religion or any other controversy on this site. I want Randomography to be a place where you can relax your brain. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have the urge to pontificate from time to time. I was sorely lacking a soapbox from which to opine, so I created The Curious Ostrich. The ostrich is (wrongly) thought to hide its head in the sand when danger approaches. The old “what you don’t know can’t hurt you” schtick. But what if the ostrich was curious? Wouldn’t there be an inner battle between wanting to know and not wanting to know? Well that’s how I feel about a lot of things. Sometimes I want to expose things to the light and put them under a microscope, and other times I’d rather they just go away and leave me blissful in my ignorance. It’s often a matter how bad it gets once I start looking closely. Once the problem gets beyond my ability to wrap my mind around it, the sand starts looking real safe.  I’ve also decided to open the blog up to some co-authors, so you never know who you might find writing there. Maybe a few good discussions will ensue.
