Ken Larsen's website - An explanation of what this website is all about

 

This is my personal website.  I'm retired and posting things to it has become a hobby of mine.  I'm not interested in running for public office or even trying to get a job. 

 

Initially, this website was all about backgammon.  Part of it was to document a backgammon club that I ran from 2008 to 2017.

 

It has morphed into a grab-bag of my musings on a wide variety of topics.  Beginning in 2014 I added stuff about the local political scene.  That has become the largest portion of the site.  Politically, I'm fiscally conservative but socially liberal.  I use this website to document my views. 

 

I hate advertising and refuse to have any advertisements on my website.   

 

People have suggested that I add a blog section ... which would permit others to comment on my various web pages.  I will not allow that.  This website is only for my views.  If you want to comment, post your comments on your own website, use social media [and link to my website], or you can email me.

 

Some of my pages are in the inchoate stage.  "Inchoate" is a fancy word which means rudimentary or just forming.  Some of my comments about school issues fall in this category, because it's only been a couple of years since I first began exploring them.  Those pages will likely undergo significant change as I learn more. 

 

I have no idea how many people view my website, but it must be pretty high, because if you do a Google search on my name, my website is returned #1 by Google.  Google's search algorithm gives higher weight to websites which are viewed frequently.
