About The Firing Squid
The purpose of this blog is to offer alternative opinion and analysis on current world events. Our aim: that out of a sea of mediocrity, a memorable creature may arise. On the other hand, it might be fun just to have a good rant and be done with it. Either way, enjoy it!
The ink of an octopus or squid has been used to pen some of the world’s mightiest words. Language has changed more about the world than guns, extortion and other forms of material intimidation ever can. By fighting the good fight on the battlefield of ideas, we can all do our part in righting the wrongs, effacing fallacies and promoting understanding and wisdom about events in the world and in our daily lives.
Don’t shoot them with guns…
