  1. Howdy Garry. I have added both of your Examiner RSS feeds to my paper. When I get around to adding a blog roll to my personal site, I will be glad to add you there as well. Let me know how else I can help you spread your writings. Keep up the great work and best wishes!


    1. Thank you so much for your kind words and promotion of my blog. I usually make my posts with the Press This app and don’t often see what others are posting. If you have anything you would like me to share with my modest but growing number of readers, I certainly will. Just let me know…


  2. Hi there!
    I am helping with Sarvis’ gubernatorial race here in VA. I am planning on conducting an interview with him soon– would you be willing to repost that interview?

    Also, I think it might be helpful for our ballot access hurdle if we could draw attention to our need for more volunteers to help collect signatures. Would you be interested in featuring a piece on that issue as well? We have a long time Libertarian activist working on this project who might be willing to provide us with some insight your readers may enjoy.

    Thank you kindly in advance for all you do for liberty.
