Welcome to The Margin. I plan to fill this space with cultural reflections, on books, movies, and TV in particular. My style will be annotative—commentary in the margin of our culture—hence the name. With many if not most blogs, initial purposes are surpassed or abandoned or forgotten, and posts become longer and more frequent—the blog takes over, wagging the blogger. To say anything more of my plans for this blog would likely be futile, so I won’t do it. I will say that I hope its quality justifies its existence. We’ll see.
