I'm a writer. That should explain why I use apostrophes in the correct places and long words that other folks have to look up. I write political commentary and fantasy novels. I also travel around the blogosphere, where I leave pithy remarks under pseudonyms. My tilt is leftward but I've been through the cycle enough times to understand the difference between campaigning and governing; I wish everyone did.
Other interests include: my rescue Boxers, Brody and Jesse, who are pictured here with me in the Azalea Garden at The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC.
