What in the world is Garage Logic ?
That's a perfectly reasonable question.
There are about 15 pages of documents describing some details of Garage Logic, but that is not very helpful when you just want a quick explanation, is it?
OK, I'll try to give you the Reader's Digest version of the epic drama of Garage Logic.
- Joe Soucheray is a columnist for
The Saint Paul Pioneer Press. Mr. Soucheray is also a radio talk
show host on AM 1500 KSTP (in the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota).
- In an effort to pursue the basic logic and common sense which seem to be sadly
lacking in modern America, Joe built a virtual city as a vehicle for discussion.
- Joe believes that most problems can be solved using the type of discussions
that commonly take place in garages. Hence: Garage Logic.
- This imaginary city is populated with citizens who take responsibility for
their own needs and wish to be left to pursue their own dreams.
- Joe became the Mayor of this little burg, the Seat of Gumption County. As the only elected politician and
singular Government official, he is loved and respected by the citizenry. Because
the citizens are so very self-reliant, the Mayor's primary responsibility is the
purchase and ignition of fireworks for the annual July 4th celebration.
- Some other cities within Gumption County are Kitchen Table Town, and Libertyville.
Other neighbors of Garage Logic are Liberal Lakes, and Euphoria. We're not terribly
proud of them, though.
- All are welcome in Garage Logic. Because this town is virtual, your citizenship
is based on your state of mind, not your geographical location.
- To me, it seemed only natural that a virtual town should be represented in
the virtual reality of the World Wide Web. In keeping with the spirit of Garage
Logic, I started this project for fun, and many citizens joined in the town's
WWW barn raising. Without any Governmental recognition I decided to become the
freelance internet ambassador for the town.
