Out with the bathwater

I just scrapped all my posts on the west coast.  I hope I didn’t throw out the baby, but the water was getting awful murky and I really needed a new tub full- if for no other reason than so that I could feel clean.

The west coast of Africa has a hideous history as a center of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.  It’s easy to get mired in discussing it and there is really nothing I can say about it that hasn’t already been said by others and I think it best to leave it at that.  There are some things that deserve- no, require- a great deal of thought and research before you put them down on paper, and I’m just not the person to do so in this case.
