Welcome to My Newsletter

Why Subscribe?

If you’re here it’s because either you follow me on one or more of the many social media platforms that I inhabit or because somebody forwarded you a post of mine and you said to yourself, “Wow, what an intelligent fellow. I think that I would like to hear more of this gentleman’s opinions.” However you got here, welcome.

To answer the question, here’s why: because if you find me at all funny or interesting or just want to be my friend, here is where I will regularly (or as regularly as I can) offer up opinions and commentary on the news, politics, sports, entertainment and other stuff, hopefully without making a problematic ass of myself.

My background is that I have no particular experience or expertise as a journalist, social critic or political analyst, but I know what I think about things and what makes me happy or angry or hopeful or pessimistic and I know how to tell you what I think about these things, hopefully in a funny or thoughtful or even provocative way. What I’m trying to say without saying it is that I have a way with words. That’s my thing.

You can also follow me on Twitter @nraymz or Mastodon, @raymz, whichever of those floats your boat (or outlasts Elon Musk).

Also, when you subscribe you’ll get full access to the newsletter and website. You’ll never miss an update because every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

Oh yeah, one more thing: the views expressed here are mine, and mine alone and not of my employer or any other person or entity with which I might be affiliated.
