About Red Sky at Night
March 29, 2008
My name is Bob Sutton.
Red Sky at Night is my bully-pulpit for ideas, rants, cultural ephemera and whatever other mental detritus I find stuck in my hawse-pipe. Here you’ll find evolving articles and stories, plus unsolicited opinions, rebuttals to contemporary media reporting, and snarky commentary about current events. Yep, it’s a blog.
My interests include land preservation, conservative politics, web design, tying dry flies and raising smart kids. A more exhaustive list than that would quickly bore us both.
I’ve taken great pains to purge this website of anything nostalgic, consumerist, or remotely fair to Democrats.
I expect Canadians, in particular, to take umbrage at these pages. Screw ‘em.
If you need to know, I am mostly writing this stuff in Smallville, New Jersey, population 2,400. Although I am a Southerner by the Grace of God, where I live today doesn’t suck. I called Manhattan home for fifteen years and am no stranger to strange places. Maybe that’s why people say I’m becoming a regular Jersey guy.
But don’t read too much into that. I’ve loathed The Boss ever since national newsweeklies pronounced him “the next Bob Dylan.”
As if. Bruce Springsteen can’t carry Bob Dylan’s jock strap.
And you can quote me on that.
