In the past month I have received many inquiries about Craw’s Corner and thank you. I started this project in 2011 and we have evolved both good and bad over the years. As a labor of love, it is not only hard to get contributors, but hard to get contributors on regular basis.
Not that I am a great writer, or arrogant, but Craw’s Corner functioned much better when I was doing this solo. The reason I say that was it was consistency.
So with that said, anyone including myself who contributes to Craw’s Corner must contribute on consistent basis. I am open to adding anyone that wishes to contribute on regular basis. I am not talking about volume, I am talking about consistency.
So starting tomorrow, May 1st, you will see content here everyday, even if I go solo. This blog is for you the readers, that simple.
Finally, not everyday, but our subjects will be news, sports and weather, with a heavy emphasis on news, basketball, golf, sports business, stadium & arena news, power rankings and FUN.
Thank you for loyalty and you will be excited about future. My email if you wish to contribute, email@example.com
Founder, Craw’s Corner

Watching CNN last night, my gaze became transfixed on the ticker at the bottom of the television. Questions, lots of them, streamed across the screen in small print. Viewers were sharing their personal questions about the coronavirus to the assembled panel of individuals who have recently emerged as our de facto public leaders in this crisis.
Nearly every question centered on either safety, suffering, or salvation. The same trio of polarizing subjects that unite the entire world right now as we all trend towards some form of disintegration.
It prompted me to think about the questions we all ask, and the answers we anxiously seek. What should we be asking in times like these? Are the answers, if they come, so selfish as to exonerate us from the suffering of others. Are they too existential in nature to ever explain the riddle of inequality?
Taped next to my desk as I write this, is a printed excerpt from one of my favorite writers, Dawn Powell. Writing about New York City in a novel set in the 1940's, Powell describes a scene between a husband and wife, facing a fractured marriage and an uncertain world:
"Frederick was idly fiddling with the bedside radio and there was a sputtering of words and confused noises.
'It's the Bikini test - the atom bomb the elevator man's wife is afraid of'', Frederick said.
"When you hear the words- 'What goes here' that will be the signal-" said the faraway voice, and suddenly Frederick was filled with fear, too.
He went over to his wife and held her tightly.
In a world of destruction one must hold fast to whatever fragments of love are left, for sometimes a mosaic can be more beautiful than an unbroken pattern."
May all the questions currently circling our breached globe.... be framed viscerally in this bit of fictional wisdom.
God of Love, bless each of us in the mosaic of common questions.. ...and transform this current broken space between us.
