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, but I may be limited in my ability to respond to inquiries (email: gardencycles5@gmail.com). 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 not possible without the first two: both liberty and justice.
