Mr. LedeLederman covers two distinct areas in his web essays. Politics and the state of the country, state and city are his general interest, and most of his written thoughts cover those subjects.
He is also the President of A.R.T.I.S.T. (Artists' Response To Illegal State Tactics), and when the rights of street artists are in jeopardy he devotes his writing to helping preserve the street artists' First Amendment rights.
These two areas are not always of equal interest to an individual wanting to be on the mailing list. In order to prevent his readers from receiving any unwanted email, there is now a method for defining the subject of the essays you want to receive.
