What readers are saying about the Musings
Iíve said before, your blog is my favorite and I like the Musings even more.
For me, you are "pure," meaning interested in useful understanding and not
contaminated with hidden agendas.
I vote for you to keep on being yourself, and enjoying it.
I just wanted to tell you how much of a bargain I am getting for a few
hundred bucks invested over a few years.
What makes you a channel worth paying for? It's actually pretty simple -
you possess a clarity of thought that most of us can only dream of, and a
perspective that allows you to focus on the truth with laser-like precision.
I love your musings, Charles! What a wonderful gift to your subscribers!
Very insightful and covers
many areas where I may not be focused due to my daily routine!

I love it!!!! thank you for putting this together. So useful to get a "sane"
appraisal of what is going on, rather than a hyped emotional "this is how you
should think and feel."
The internet can supply anyones particular need for a conspiracy-backed theory,
but using data from multiple sources (give me the facts) increases the
credibility dramatically of what the actual "big picture" is. And of course,
I love your dissertation & dissection of what is going on, with just a "touch
of acerbic wit" to spice it up a bit.
