The ugly past.

I just took it upon myself to republish a huge backlog of posts here - nearly 300 of them.  I realize, with no small amount of apprehension, that I've said some ugly things, many of them things I now regret.

I feel it would be unbecoming of me to simply delete these posts and act as though they had never existed; no, I think being forthright about it is best.

I know I've made mistakes.  Everyone has.  I also know that trying to deny them will only make things worse.  I think of myself as being a pretty honest guy, and I should live up to that.
