Collected here are the column-length commentary pieces I've written and submitted to various newspapers and online outlets. Where they were chosen for publication I've linked to the printed location. The text here will be my original version, even if it was edited for publication.

My motivation for writing is not to tell readers how to think, but to inspire them to think about the issue at hand, to educate themselves and decide for themselves. I certainly don't expect unequivocal agreement with everything I've written here from every visitor - so let me know what you think! Email me here: jason(at)
