About bluebanshee

I have decided to create a blog as a way to express my voice. I have deep concerns about the state of our democracy and its most basic institutions. I also want a place where I can gather together resources and information in a way that is both meaningful and trackable.

The name bluebanshee was chosen for this blog because it compresses several parts of my personal experience into one phrase:

  • I am a committed, activist Democrat — hence “blue”
  • I am of Irish ancestry — therefore the choice of “banshee”
  • I often find myself in the role of foreseeing problems and warning others about my concerns — this describes the traditional Irish description of the banshee as one who wails in warning before some pending catastrophic event
