After more than 2 1/2 years of The Eisenthal Report (aka "TER") - and more than 800 posts - I feel that it's time to give TER readers a little more help in navigating this site.
If you have come here as the result of a search on a specific topic - and around half of my visitors are referred from search engines - you should know that TER covers a very wide range of subject matter. You may come here because you searched for "Dvorak's Seventh Symphony," but you should know that you will also find commentary here on topics as diverse as the U.S. Defense budget, the Boston Red Sox, and the actress Parminder Nagra. There are two good ways of finding the diversity of commentary that is here - other than using Google. In the right hand column at the top, you will see the following categories: Culture, General Commentary, Geography, Politics, Public Policy, Public Policy - Health Care, Public Policy - International, Public Policy - Massachusetts, and Society - Race.
Another way to search past posts is to click on "ARCHIVES" to the right and below. Only my 20 most recent posts are listed on my main page. To see earlier posts, you must either look at the categories or go into the archives. The archives are arranged by month - going back to February 2005, when I launched The Eisenthal Report.
One thing to note when searching the categories and "ARCHIVES" is that Typepad has now "paginated" those sections. To see more than the most recent posts in those sections, it is necessary to click on the small arrow (it looks like this - >>) at the bottom of those pages.
If you have arrived here as the result of a specific search, you can get to my main page by clicking "Main" near the top of the page.
If you come first thing to TER's main page - either as a regular reader or otherwise - you may already be familiar with some of TER's features. On the left, below my picture, is an "ABOUT" page, which contains a short biography, and my contact info. Below those - and below my "Policies and Disclaimers - is my blog and link roll. Going down the page, you will find Massachusetts Media, Other Media, Politics, Campaigns, Public Policy, and Culture. At this point, I am linking to around 170 blogs and other web sites. You may find something interesting in those lists.
I would also point to visitors to a list of my six most recently read books - as presented through SHELFARI - to the right and below the "Recent Posts." If nothing else, it helps me keep track of what I've been reading - but I also enjoy sharing.
I thank you for stopping by - and I hope that you find something useful, or interesting, or both in these pages.
