[The Two Percent Company Wants You...to help us out with the Score!]
When we first started the Two Percent Company, our plan was simple — we wanted to build a repository for all of our thoughts and opinions on the problems and issues we saw in our country and in the world. With this goal in mind, we laid out a foundation for the Score, fully intending to flesh it out as time marched on. We gathered up our thoughts, mostly in the form of bulleted lists, and — not wanting to keep everything offline until the Score entries were completed — we uploaded these draft lists to our site.
As an afterthought, we also decided to add a blog to the site, on the off chance that we might want to post a few time-sensitive entries concerning news items and other current events. These were to be our Rants — simple, off the cuff reactions to stories and events that got us particularly excited, interested or outraged. We fully expected to write no more than one or two Rants per month and we figured we'd spend the bulk of our time refining the Score.
However, as happens so often, one project overtook another, and our Rants became so interesting and topical (to us, anyway) that we felt the need to concentrate on them, carefully constructing and elaborating our views on the latest news and discussing and defending those views in the comments. Meanwhile, most of the Score entries are still the occasionally vague "rough draft" lists that we posted way back when we started. Don't get us wrong, we have lots of notes and plans and e-mails from readers that we want to incorporate into the Score, but just about all of our Two Percent time is taken up by Rants and comments.
The upshot: many folks have written to us since we first published the site — telling us that some entry or other in our Score was inaccurate or not so carefully thought out — and they've made some really good points. The Score is unfinished, as we haven't yet taken those basic foundations posted initially and built upon them a well-constructed framework of ideas and opinions. In some cases, what we've written is pretty vague, and in many cases, it isn't well documented or supported by external links. We're aware of this, and we're hoping to address it as soon as we can, but it might take a while.
So if you have questions about an issue we haven't covered yet, or if you would like to challenge our facts or our conclusions, drop us a line. We're sincerely interested in what you have to say!
