Conroy and the Man
Conroy and The Man debuted in September 2010, with wide-ranging posts, on well, anything that interests us.
We guarantee only the following - this blog is home to the greatest writing; most original, groundbreaking insights; brilliantly entertaining repartee; and the timeless power of genius...okay, perhaps a bit of hyperbole.
What we can promise is the energy of two men inspired by the complexity and variety of this universe and hungry to express that interest to our readers. We cover topics from the esoteric to the mundane, but always with enthusiasm.
