Guy Wire; a pseudonym

How much value should we place on commentary of someone who will not associate their name with their words?  One wonders more about the reason for anonymity than the opinions expressed by the author, or at least I do. I have been expressing and publishing my views fully and without reservations.  Being outspoken has almost certainly hurt my career and salary potential as a broadcast engineer.  I am okay with that, as every morning when I am shaving, I can look myself in the eye and be thankful for the person who I am.

For myself, until “Guy Wire” tells us who he or she is, there is no absolutely no credibility in those words.  It is a shame that Radio World chooses to publish this commentary.

A pessimist sees the glass as half empty. An optimist sees the glass as half full. The engineer sees the glass as twice the size it needs to be.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
~Benjamin Franklin

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
~Rudyard Kipling

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes the freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers
~Universal Declaration Of Human Rights, Article 19

...radio was discovered, and not invented, and that these frequencies and principles were always in existence long before man was aware of them. Therefore, no one owns them. They are there as free as sunlight, which is a higher frequency form of the same energy.
