From James Michael Iddins:
Welcome to my attempt to organize my thoughts and works online. This seemed as good a place as any to start sharing my thoughts with the world. Feel free to browse and comment at will. You will notice that I do enjoy what some would consider controversial topics, so I encourage comments especially on those works. I admit that a few of the topics might seem fairly obscure or esoteric, and the only explanation I can offer for those is that for one reason or another I have felt inspired to pursue these or that they somehow connect to larger issues I am exploring.
