Scott P. Richert
I'm the executive editor of Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture and the Catholicism Expert for About.com. My monthly column in Chronicles, "The Rockford Files," examines political, economic, social, and cultural trends in America from the vantage point of a middle-sized town in the Midwest. A graduate of Michigan State University, I hold an M.A. in political theory from the Catholic University of America. My wife, Amy, and I live in Rockford, Illinois, with our eight children.
