About The Polite Observer

Mr. Observer is an odd duck. He loves living in the twenty-first century, while not very pleased with its less savory aspects. He also likes the Age of Reason, but is quite glad he wasn’t born back then–that infant mortality problem, for one thing, along with disease, injustice, and the difficulty of getting a good, hot shower.

Mr. Observer looks forward to the return of civility in discourse. He prefers civil, well-informed people who disagree with him to rude hotheads who have no idea what they are talking about, even if their views tend to be close to his own.

He is also a great believer in Grammar, Spelling, and Punctuation.
