Once upon a time, we were referred to as the "brain trust over at Political Calculations". From that moment on, we've always referred to ourselves as "we", not because we have some royal delusions of adequacy, but because we recognized that it was true. Political Calculations is a genuinely collaborative effort involving some of most intelligent and insightful people alive today, whose various contributions to the posts that appear here and elsewhere around the Internet ought to be acknowledged.
A lot of them are people who simply blogged about problems they solved in their everyday lives. Some of them are our regular readers, who asked some good questions that we couldn't resist answering. Others are among the top professionals in their fields. They make us possible!
The best part? Many of them have absolutely no idea who we are! And that's the way we like it, but if you must know more about us, you might start with our online profile, because it's all true....
Now, that's us, but what about you? What if you had your own brain trust, where you knew that everyone in it was truly one of the top people in their lines of work? People who have devoted years to what they do, and because they have, could answer almost any question you might ask them. Wouldn't that be pretty cool?
It so happens that Garth Sundem, for many practical purposes, "one of us", has assembled his own brain trust and asked them almost anything!
