My name is Curt Slyder. I live in northwestern Indiana and have spent the majority of my adult life as a journalist. That means I’m paid a little money to write a lot of words that inform readers of goings on in a way that persuades them to give my employer money. I’m supposed to keep my opinion to myself and try to complete the story presenting as many sides as possible in equal amounts. I’ve been able to do that pretty well throughout my career…

But, yes, I do have opinions. Sometimes they even make sense. It’s a great big world out there with countless things going on to write about. How can I just sit on the sidelines?

My plan for this blog is to spread (like a virus) the thoughts rambling around in my head. I’ve seen a lot of things in my life. And I try to stay in touch with what is happening in the world. I want to inform people. I want to assist people. I want to make you think. I want to make you laugh…intentionally…at times. I want to make you come back for more.


One thought on “About

  1. I signed up to follow your blog. I’ve started one several times, but then stop. Perhaps following yours will keep me going. Perhaps this is the new venue where we old journalists can find
    our voice and speak again.
