Observing On The Edge
An opening post, in which This Observer presents a brief introduction for this blog's esteemed readers, if, when, and as they emerge. If a keyword query for "on the edge" brought you here in search of informed insider commentary on skydiving or other risk-seeking physical pursuits, you'll probably be disappointed. Instead, TO is more likely to comment on "edge cases" in and around the contemporary world and life within it, items that don't seem to behave in the ways that TO might expect, that juxtapose oddly with their surroundings, or that are simply amusing. TO is intrigued by these (whether in appreciation, dismay, or both), and hopes that readers will share these interests.
