What’s in a name?

As you can see from above, the title of this blog is Rock and Rhetoric.  I ran through a few other suggestions looking for a title that would reflect what I am thinking of blogging about.

To acknowledge my interest in music and guitars I went for the Rock title (even though the main styles of music will vary between rock, blues and heavy metal). As for the rhetoric title?  Well the other main theme of this blog will be about politics, certainly from a Scottish Independence viewpoint, but other political issues may well emerge.  I struggled to think of one all-encompassing term and settled for Rhetoric – after all politics (and politicians) survive on a diet of words and arguments.
