My degree is in Journalism -- much good has it ever done me, since I have never worked professionally in that field. However, I have high standards for those who say they are serving my Right to Know -- and I observe them closely. As should you.
I only see movies on videotape. I'm a big fan of what the Outside World calls "date movies"; really liked Sleepless in Seattle. Cried at Julia Roberts' funeral in Steel Magnolias. (But then, I cried at the end of the Pinky and the Brain Christmas Special, too.)
Politically I see myself as a small-L libertarian. (As opposed to the Libertarian Party, who appear to me to be extremists -- anarchists rather than libertarians, as I define it.) To some I probably appear conservative, but the biggest thing I have in common with the Republicans is that I don't trust the Democrats either. Politics appears to me as a succession of average people doing a succession of stupid things, and I find it too depressing to discuss often or for long.
But sometimes you just have to say something. Hence my blog.
I live in a cozy neighborhood about two miles from Five Points, the center of Atlanta's central business district. I share the house with a wife, two kids, and the kids' godfather.
I am a longtime member, and currently the editor, of the Myriad amateur press alliance.
Since 1987 I've been senior Foley artist for the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company; since 1993 I've been writing scripts, and am the creator of the popular series Bumpers Crossroads; and I've hesitantly made my way to the microphone as well.
