We do our best to…

  • Speak truth.
  • Be interesting.
  • Be funny.
  • Be intentional.
  • Welcome others.
  • Be respectful, not mean spirited…
  • Be open and honest.
  • Foster community.
  • Express love.

We value music, art, literature, beauty and truth. There it is again, the T-word.

We value the Constitution of the United States of America. So far.

We respect international law and support the United Nations.

We are part of the culture of life, believing that humans can get along with each other, protect the environment, and through our own intelligent design, create a society where each person’s choice is protected and respected.

Listics is an electronic publication, some might call it in large part a BLOG, although that word seems to trivialize our intention. Visitors are welcome to comment or contact us through email. Your comments and emails become our property, and (with the exception of material provided in confidence) may from time to time find their way into Listics. Or not. Listics reserves the right to edit or delete comments. It’s our publication and we have an editorial responsibility that we take seriously.

We intend to do our best to follow the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics, except when to do so would interfere with our art.

Disclaimer: If I ever have interests material enough to merit a disclaimer, the readers of this webPub will be among the first to know. Well, on the other hand, the LA Times once suspended Michael Hitzik, a Pulitzer Prize winning staffer, for anonymous blogging and anonymous comments. This terrified me and I have to come clean:

From time to time on this blog, the engaged reader may run across comments by entities known as “truth” and “beauty.” I can not tell a lie… I made these entities up. If you happen across a comment from beauty or truth, odds are that I wrote it. I hope that covers my butt well enough that Sandhill will not fire me for unethical anonymity.

About page is 404, btw.

Any idea why technorati is treating every post here as a separate blog? so every time I appear on your blog roll it gets counted as a link from a different blog.

I sent an inquiry to technorati some time back. I am also receiving empty comment containers that trigger notification of a comment in moderation. I’m on WP 2.1.2 so should be protected somewhat, but have felt a pressure from these sorts of unexpected things all month. There are a lot of people out on the web who know more about how these php/mySQL things work than I do. Some of those people like to mess other people up.

I don’t know if I ever had an ABOUT page working with this theme, so have flipped the pointer to this disclaimer. How did you find it to leave a comment here BTW?

Also, sorry I haven’t migrated your interview (and all the others) yet. I’m the world’s biggest procrastinator.

I found this disclaimer page via the Pages menu on the right.

You can remove the about page, which you really should!
