Welcome to ThreeSources.com! This is an exciting project for me. I look forward to blogging with folks that I agree with frequently, and disagree with frequently. Fun.
Real Identity: John Kranz. "jk" is a nickname and a stage name. I invite you to check out Berkeley Square's web page. I am the guy with the guitar but subtract 70 pounds for a more current look. Buy a CD if you like jazz standards, the new one is pretty good!
Lafayette is in very blue Boulder County in the Red state of Colorado. I work in Boulder, rubbing elbows with the Che Guevara t-shirt crowd.
On blogging: There’s a great line in George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s “You Can’t Take It With You.” From memory it goes something like this: “Your father raises orchids because he can – my mom writes plays because a typewriter was delivered here by mistake several years ago.” I set up a blog to try and sell a web design to somebody. I didn’t sell the design, but I didn’t stop blogging. My "Berkeley Square Blog" lasted just under two years, now I have set up shop here at ThreeSources.com.
I am intrigued with business, markets and economics -- and especially their effect on lifestyle. I like a lot of stuff, but am especially partial to the writings of Larry Kudlow, Virginia Postrel, and Susan Lee.
On Politics: Milton Friedman said it best: " I'm, a little-l libertarian and a big-R Republican. I want liberty for myself and don't mind trading some property to finance the advancement of Freedom in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Iran, and North Korea. I'm not socially conservative. Glenn Reynolds famously did not say "I'd be delighted to live in a country where happily married gay couples had closets full of assault weapons," but I share that sentiment.
