This blog/website is largely one citizen’s perspective, borrowed from modest reading and gleaned from a lifetime of observation. My name is Steve Richmond, and I am a resident of Seattle.

I want to do what I can to change the tragic circumstances of our times. I have given considerable thought to structural problems we face, and I hope to develop themes regarding disparities in our society.

I am an advocate for freedom, responsibility, and public safety, the last being impossible without the first two: both liberty and justice.
