My Faith is Renewed in Americans

“So,” you must be thinking, “is Myles talking about the Presidential election polls, the topic of war in Iraq, or even Ford launching a new hybrid fuel SUV?”

I’ve installed new weblog software called MovableType, which will probably surprise some of you, especially since I’ve been such a poo-pooer of blogs in the past.

    However, thanks to my friends that have allowed me to see the light, so to speak, I have decided it’d be the easiest way to keep the site updated. After seeing some extremely well done blogs, I tend to agree.
