I think a worthy life turns on creativity, curiosity, and compassion. I also like trees, Kant, Post-Impressionism, The Clash, antique books, Charles Baudelaire, and seriousness of purpose. I detest Andy Warhol, libertarians, lemon meringue pie, late Heidegger, and smallness of soul. I try to be a vegetarian, with mixed results. I also try to be both agnostic and generous, and in these areas think that I consistently succeed. I believe that "I, Claudius," "Upstairs, Downstairs," and "Arrested Development" were among the finest things ever put on television (though I no longer own one). I additionally believe that good Roquefort is the king of cheeses.
This is my creed.
