I am Pete Koutoulas, a full-time IT professional at Fayette County Public Schools in Lexington, Kentucky — and a part-time opinion columnist for my hometown newspaper, the Winchester Sun.
This blog is simply a compilation of my weekly column for the Sun. It is my attempt to maintain a permanent record of my writings and to allow anyone who so desires to subscribe and receive updates when a new column appears.
I have varied interests, which are expressed in my columns. If you share some of these interests, you may find something here of interest. I am a science enthusiast, a Humanist, a skeptic of all things supernatural and unfounded in reason and evidence. My political stance leans decidedly left; however, I am not primarily driven by ideology but by reason and evidence. And I will often call out liberals as well as conservatives for ideas that I consider to be counter-productive or hurtful.
I welcome comments, whether offering praise or constructive criticism and won’t shy away from a good-faith debate. But I will not approve any comments that I consider to not be helpful, useful, or intended to spark greater understanding.
