About The Relatively Free Press blog

This blog's title pays an old man's homage to a young man's never-realized goal of founding The North-Central Idaho Relatively Free Press.

In that vision, the relative freedom of the newspaper flowed from its acceptance of revenue only from subscribers and for publication of legal notices. Which may explain a lot about why the goal was never realized.

But in the present milieu, not even subscribers are required if you have a working computer and a decent internet connection. I've got both, so the dream of a news publication beholden to no commercial bias can finally be realized, especially now that I am retired with a fully-vested retirement income.
