What is Underlying Logic?

At Underlying Logic, I will post commentary on culture, politics, sports, books, or anything else that catches my attention in the right way. The content of the blog is not defined by subject area. Rather, I aim to resist the rapid-fire reactive tendency of many blogs (including others of my own) by posting only when I have at least a paragraph or two to write about the larger issues raised by an event or text. For example, I'll write about the choices of the American League's Most Valuable Player for 2005, but the point of the post will not be to make a case for one candidate over the other. Instead, it will examine the ways in which other writers and analyst make their cases--not the debate of the moment but its underlying logic.
