A Calling Or A Paycheck... Why Not Both? (Guest Blogger: Travis Sloat)

I’ve issued an open call for guest bloggers for the month of October. Partly this is just to break things up, and partly it's because I'll be doing my best to finish strong on #OKElections16.

There are few if any limits on topic or length – I merely ask for basic decency and sincerity. It’s ideal if you disagree with me about something, but given how difficult that is to do once basking in Blue, it’s not a requirement. I'm looking for other voices - whatever the angle or passion in play.
