Welcome to BobKat's Lair ®


A lair is a home; A castle; A burrow; A haven; a place where one should feel safe. To ensure our safety especially in one's lair, we have laws. And some laws cause more harm than good!

This is a good place. There's lots to see and do. It's apolitical while providing non-partisan news about politics, which we can't escape.

Check out my aquarium and feed the fish; check out my post(s), my favorite media list and the many links to websites that promote what I feel is important.

Time for the awakening...

That is what my goal is here... to present topics which highlight the plight of people. Why, 2000 years after Caesar Augustus, are we still a people being hurt? With all our advancements in technology, medicine, communications, why are we a people still being hurt? Human nature hasn't changed much, but that doesn't mean it isn't time now for that to happen, and it is undoubtedly happening - hard to see however. This blog is part of that change and a witness to it.

"Why do I blog?"

It's the newest why BobKat... over the years, I don't know how many others out there get questioned repeatedly about why I/we do what we do. Maybe it's commonplace. But, to me, when people question me, it feels personal. The true question is 'how will I make money doing that?'

I may be particularly sensitive, when being questioned, given past experiences. And so we begin...

History aside for the moment, I do it for me, and I do it with the idea that others will find my blog interesting, maybe inspiring.

It's a learning experience, a place to exercise my mind, thoughts, and although a bit on the fringe at times express myself. Others can listen. It's what I did during the 70's when I was working at the college, I wrote all around the campus, and after work at night I wrote a the college bar nearby. Legal age for alcohol was 18.

Dung is what's left of those years... that and some great, cherished memories. Quite the combo... it isn't any wonder I write... given the next 30 years that followed... the result is a mind overloaded, and writing is in my nature, and something I need to do.

I write because I can.

Since Oct. of last year I've written 70+ posts. I have 4 followers, I have 8 votes in my opinion poll (bottom of this page), and three friends that write comments occasionally.

No, profit isn't the name of this pastime... not yet anyway.

This is a good way to experiment with my writing... it's also a great way to promote those causes I believe in.

Several new posts in the works...

George, my agent, will take any further questions :-


  1. I am thinking George will demand more posts--you better get your creative juices flowing Bob...

  2. Dear BobKat,
    Well, I love this post b/c I have had them ask everything from 'what's the money in it?' to 'irresponsible journalism'. They can just go home without a sucker.

    I do it ah, why, I believe b/c it helps me reflect on the parts of the world that interest me or confound me. Among other reasons, of course.

    All this time I was looking for an agent. Who knew I was feeding two already. Ah, and my agents are asleep WAY too often.

    Ann T.

  3. Slam... I'm trying...

    Ann T., you made me laugh and just so you know, my agent sleeps a lot too, although, he's often out hunting vermin... so I guess he deserves his catnaps. I'm glad I'm not the only one asked that question!

    Thank-you, both of you...
