In the nervous system, a synapse is a structure that permits a neuron to pass an electrical or chemical signal to another cell. The Neuron Doctrine holds that though neurons are not continuous throughout the body that these cells may nonetheless communicate with each other.
This blog seeks to capture the linkage of that which falls in-between the obvious, conventional and typical. Its niche is a voice, not a topic. It seeks to explore the assorted and sundry, including politics, the Middle East, culture, sports, humor and satire, “from a distinctive perspective with insight, sarcasm and occasionally, humor.”
I never intended to write a blog; just wanted an online host for some of my articles. Once Between the Synapse appeared in the online service’s mandatory request for a title, a blogger I became. That was spring of 2008, when Blackberry’s ruled the world, the Great Recession revealed its true intentions, and a movie featuring real impoverished children won best picture. BtS encountered three makeovers before settling on the moody, dark blue background which ran for over 3 years. Desirous of a new, fresh approach as well as a format capable of greater content, I launched the fifth and current edition this past December.
