Welcome To My Website

On this website I will be posting things that I have written in the past as well as thoughts on current issues.

The primary subjects will be in the area of politics and economics. I have a degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and have studied economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. I have been active with the Democratic Party in Elk Grove Township, Cook County, Illinois.

I will also be commenting on current issues of the day.

Visitors to this website are encouraged to send me e-mails at rkentkirkwood@wowway.com with their comments and suggestions. Some of their comments may be posted on this website near the subject area to which they refer. I am open-minded and willing to change my positions given convincing counter arguments.

If you like what you find here, and if you would like to be notified when new items are posted, please send me an e-mail with "Subscribe" in the subject line. I will be happy to add you to a distribution list of people who would like notification. You can "Unsubscribe" whenever you want.

Thank you for visiting.
