My self-summary
I'm a amalgamation of contrasts. I grew up in a small, rural town in New York State. But I lived most of my adult life in Manhattan. So I'm a country boy with urban polish. I'm quiet by nature, but outspoken and opinionated about things like the corporate control of our country. I'm equally at home talking bass fishing or world economics. So I'm as likely to read Bassmaster magazine as Piketty's best selling (fantastic!) book on economics and income inequality. I studied civil engineering in college, but became a photographer. I could eat a salad for every meal, yet I love a huge variety of ethnic foods (thank you, NY!). I'm a combat veteran of Vietnam, yet I despise the contrived glorification of our military and phony patriotism promoted by our corporate media. All wars we've fought since WWII have been for corporate good. None whatsoever for our so called freedom. I'm an atheist, yet I'm more Christian than most Christians in terms of human values. I am honest and loyal to a fault. I'm as patient as a stalking tiger, though I haven't a moment to suffer a fool's ignorance.

Mostly retired. I fish, golf, drive my sports car, play pool and read. I also like to cook.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at playing pool. My father often quipped that was my major at college.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Moby Dick was a childhood favorite. It's an amazing book in that as I've read it at various stages of my life, I discover, each time, new meanings, new symbolism, and depth I never before fathomed.
1984 it's more chilling today than when I first read it in HS.
Anything by Katherine Harrison. Same for E. B. White. Two of the best word artists I've ever read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, economics, religion, humanity and how they all interrelate. Also, how to catch more bass.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about sex.
