The Three Q Blog, originally dubbed Quabbin Qountry Queries, is named in honor of the Quabbin Reservoir in central Massachusetts. The general Quabbin region was originally the home base for the author, and a place whose trails and massive aquatic presence served as a source of inspiration for the musings herein. We hope to write with the same rebellious spirit as the Quabbin's most famous citizen, Daniel Shays, after whom the stretch of US Hwy 202 that runs along the Quabbin's shore is named.
A rags-to-riches-to-rags military hero from the Revolutionary War, Shays later led a shoddy force of local farmers based out of a local watering hole called Conkey's Tavern against the Massachusetts militia in protest of the state's poll tax. Money was a barrier to entry into politics then, just as it remains today.
They called themselves "The Regulators" and they stood up for Democracy. We call ourselves "The Bloggers" and we must do the same kind of fighting with our words, if not our muskets.
