Here’s the quote:
“Daniel Boorstin, the former librarian of Congress, used to rise at 5 each morning and write for two hours before going into the office.
“I write to discover what I think,” he explained. “After all, the bars aren’t open that early.”
Mr. Boorstin’s morning sessions were even more valuable than he
realized. Writing not only clarifies what you already know; it is also an
astonishingly effective way to learn something new.”
Its so very true. When people ask me why I blog, the answer is that it helps me organize my thoughts, memorialize them, work them out.
In short, to discover what I think.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
