I am a writer. i write a column, you call it a blog. I'm a humanist. I am interested in animals. I have a horse, Aristotle. A big black dog, Brooks, a Macaw, Duke, three cats, a pair of kids-with four legs-a whole bunch of chickens. I'm a dyed in the wool Democrat. Lean far to the left. Am down on religious fundamentalists and not shy about saying it. I live on Kauai. Love to argue. Like political and economic discourse. Come visit me.
