To the editor:
Yesterday, I heard on NPR an interview of renowned sex advice columnist Dan Savage. In it he was asked to describe how he came to his job. At that moment I realized that I too have a calling, of sorts. Who better than I to offer advice to all of my neighbors in Norwalk to help them solve problems covering a wide range of concerns, including, but not limited to: family and relationships, civic life, government policy at all levels from local to national and even international, religion, scientific matters, legal matters, spelling and grammar, fashion, business management and investments, computer software and hardware, personal health and medical care, life decisions, and oh yes, sex too? I think that I have useful answers on all things for all people. Further, I wish to offer two voices for these answers: 1) a kind, caring, compassionate and practical voice, and 2) my own snarky, angry and impatient voice. You may avail yourself of either, or both. Finally, I offer this service at no cost (which represents only a tiny fraction of its true value).

If you wish to accept this offer, I shall leave it to you as to how we can proceed to gather questions from your readers, and post these questions and my deeply contemplated answers to your website. I can promise you that this will be both enlightening and fun, and you will have no regrets whatsoever.
Full disclosure: okay, yes, I happen to be a member of the Board of Chapman Hyperlocal Media Inc. which operates NancyOnNorwalk, and I even serve as Board Chairman. However, this should neither be held against me, nor in my favor, as I generously offer my services for this vital and important civic need.
At your service,
