Attention Tar and Feathers Reader
Posted by PintofStout on January 13, 2006
Attention Tar and Feathers reader. You may not have realized the blog’s title was Tar and Feathers since it so obviously inconspicuous. Well, the name is changing. I no longer felt that the name of a disgracing act, such as dumping tar and then feathers on some scoundrel, provided the appropriate atmosphere for discuss and debate. The name seemed too closed and tyrannical.
The new name will now be The Agora. I chose agora based on several factors, none of which matter. First, agora was the name of an open marketplace and government center in Greece city-states. The Agorists , free marketeers or advocates of open markets, took their name from the Grecian markets. The name, to me, says open market. Now, maybe this blog will be an open market of ideas. (We could sell stuff to, but I think some other places have that market covered.)
Be sure to leave a rely on the blog or failing that to send me an email.
