I wanted to bring attention to a few notable housekeeping issues this month for readers of Zoom Chron to be aware of.
First, to the right, at the blogroll, you will notice Missoula County Tyranny is no longer there. That is because Roy McKenzie’s efforts can now be found at Free Missoula News.
Another change is the shortening of Outerlimits (and a better link) as writing at that virtual space has a new article readers of this blog need to read, titled Why is Mayor Engen Replacing Missoula Police with Private Security?
Here’s an excerpt from the link:
Since Missoula’s liberal leaders aren’t bashful about bringing Killology’s habit-forming violence fetishes to a police force near us, one must wonder about the intentions of beefing up the local garrison with private gun slingers who are even less accountable than the police. A whole private industry has sprung up right under our noses, where a group of armed vigilantes vow to solve the “risk based” problems of our fair city through means apparently unavailable to the police.
I highly suggest following the link to read the whole article. It’s eye-opening, to say the least.
For the writing here, at Zoom Chron, I hope to keep up the frequency of posts (at least six a week), but my schedule might be changing, which means I might downshift on the citizen journalism articles in order to highlight the “fiction” I’ve compiled at my Substack page. That fiction will now feature my Covid journal, which I started writing in March of 2020. Most of it will be behind a paywall, but I’ll post teaser excerpts here.
To get a sense of how my fiction “went live”, so to speak, check out this part, which I posted on 2-22-2022.
I’m also going to experiment with a new style of Gonzo reporting which combines short, cynical reports from the ground, combined with my simple musical stylings. To get an idea of what this will look like, here’s my pilot effort. Coming up on that front, I recorded a song yesterday which I’m calling SHERIFF MAN GUY.
Good things are coming, dear readers, so thank you for reading, sharing, and even donating money to my GoFundMe page, where I’m hoping to continue receiving donations, which will help me with the costs I’ve already invested in making the documentary, Engen’s Missoula, while also looking to take the documentary on the road around Montana, to educate lawmakers about the scams being implemented in Zoom Town.
Like always, thanks for reading, and stay tuned for good things to come!
