A little bit about us or should I say about me
The idea for Suburban Insanity cameÂ oneÂ night whenÂ a friendÂ and I were drinking.Â The original concept was to start a blog about the middle class, about those who live in the much maligned suburbs.Â It was going to be a he said/she said kind of blog so that the reader would get perspective from both a male and female point of view.Â Alas, this fell through.
The she said part of the equation fell through.
I am tired of the trite bullshit we all put up with day after day and I will vent and rant about things that mean something.Â I will write without hyperbole, without enhancing life and putting it through a rose filter, and with my heart.Â I will speak the truth as I see it.Â It will have all the good stuff that relates to the human condition and my condition.
What is Suburban InsanityÂ about?
It is about me.Â I am a middle-aged white male who grew up poor, poor, poor in the inner-city.Â I was raised in a single parent home.Â I was the first person in my family to graduate college and I did it all on my own.Â I have been married for over 20 years to the same woman.Â I have two kids, two cats and a dog.Â I live in a nice house in a nice neighborhood in a nice state.Â I have the suburban sheen but underneath there is more.Â I want to show you the more part of the equation.Â iÂ am tired of everyone blasting the suburbs.Â There is not a damn thing wrongÂ with raising your kids in a place that is safe and good.
Welcome to Suburban Insanity and what the suburbs are all about.
A blog about the suburbs.Â A suburban blog.
