I’m honored that Steve has asked me to begin making regular contributions here at The Washington Note. Having worked with Steve on and off for about two years, I have developed a great deal of respect for him as a thinker, writer, convener, and all-purpose operative. And as a TWN reader, I’ve also gained a healthy respect for his boosters, critics, and fellow readers who take the time to comment on his posts. If my thoughts and reports can generate anywhere as much passion and debate, writing here will be well worth it.
Here is a bit of background on me. I have all sorts of things buzzing around my head right now relating to energy policy, the United Nations, long-term consequences of the Iraq debate, and politics, just to name a few. Stay tuned, and thanks in advance for the warm welcome.
