WanderingSalseros Are Renaissance Men (or Women)
I’ve had the domain name, “WanderingSalsero.com” and a blog by that name for many years but most people don’t know where the name came from. The answer actually relates to two separate ideas.
The name “salsa” (also meaning ‘sauce’ in Spanish) cames from the fact that “Salsa”, the dance style, supposedly originated from an amalgam of other music and dance styles. Such an evolutionary process is, of course, what tends to drive most progress in society. That’s not hard to understand.
Relating to my editorial policy for my blog, one thing I’ve always struggled with personally is how broad a mix of ‘elements’ to include in my “WanderingSalsero” blog. The problem is that I’ve always considered everything in life to be related and the idea of “salsa” sort of describes the story of my life.
Over the course of time, I have tended to gravitate toward a more broader mix of subjects on WanderingSalsero.com rather than defining my ‘readership’ as only those Pinochio-esqe readers whose life is composed of nothing but ‘having fun’.
Actually I tend to think of the ‘wanderingsalsero‘ as a Renaissance Man. At least to the extent that a true Wandering Salsero should have broad interests and knowledge. But I believe it’s almost impossible to have fun in a life where you have no idea of the things going on around you.
This is all to explain why I want to share the following article, which you could reasonably describe as ‘political’, and which has nothing to do with music or dancing. I am putting it here is because I think Dick Morris is such a fantastically smart guy.
Dick is the kind of guy who, if he were a college professor, his class would always be packed to the doors.
And not only is he simply knowledgeable about his subject!
He also knows how to explain it. He really makes politics (and related subjects) interesting. Almost to the point where, if I had other lives to live, I would consider the field of politics.
Anyway… here’s the link to the short video he sent out today. I think you’ll like it.
I would also recommend you subscribe to his daily email messages. They are very short, very precise, and always very topical.
