My original intent for the purpose of Pendleton Penn was to serve the citizens of Caroline County by providing an editorial account of the political and cultural news happening in the County. However, my love of State and National politics and the comfort I took in publishing my own political articles on my own site, allowed me to rationalize expanding the purpose of this enterprise to include all my political articles.
It is my opinion that mixing these two purposes, while expedient, was not an efficient or efficacious decision, as everything Caroline County has been buried under the weight of a great deal more divisive content, which is not in the spirit of Caroline County – as this county is itself a unique creature in politics.
Therefore, my State and National political writings will be published exclusively at The Bull Elephant (www.thebullelephant.com).
Pendleton Penn will return to it’s original purpose and format, focusing exclusively on Caroline County’s local government, local news and events, and it’s people. There will be exceptions made for content, while not specific to Caroline County, related to the culture of our county, such as military-related content for our folks stationed at Fort A.P. Hill. I hope that these changes will serve to better feature issues and information of interest to residents of Caroline County.
If folks are interested in my other political writings and are unfamiliar with The Bull Elephant, I will of course continue to link to them on my Facebook Page.
On occasion, I will make this site available to writers looking to publish articles which I deem appropriate and excellent, but which have not found a suitable publisher of their own.
