Why a blog? Because I’m angry, and joyful. Because I’m full of love and rage.
Why this blog? To make sense of the world. To see its beauty through its flaws. To use objective facts and moral truths to inform critical thought. To encourage, to enlighten, and to offend. To express and share ideas, both big and small.
Why Hail & Grapeshot? Because words have power to heal, to honour, and to scorn. To sweep away lies and fabrications. To crush resistance and to liberate the oppressed.
There is much work for words to do. This is one place where they can do it.
Welcome to Hail & Grapeshot.
