So this is the more casual part of my bio sketch. If this was a personal ad, this is where I'd tell you that I liked pina coladas, watching the sunset on the beach, and that kind of sappy stuff.
But it's not, and besides, pina coladas make me vomit.
What do I do for fun? I like to write. I also like, in no particular order: reading, playing soccer & rugby, playing music, talking to people, and politics.
I also like watching college football, writing music, and having no-holds-barred bull sessions with my friends.
Random Questions from Readers:
Why are you a Democrat? Well, I'm a liberal, if you want to be nitnoid 'bout that kind of stuff, which I'm not.
I'm a Democrat because, for better or worse, they're the liberal party in America. Don't get me started on the Greens. If you yearn for the stale dogma of vintage '60s radical protest chic, then, by all means, vote Green. But any party which seriously claims that there's no difference between Barbara Boxer and Orrin Hatch isn't residing in the same political universe the rest of us occupy.
But to be succinct: I'm a liberal and a Democrat because we stand for the following--
Freedom--for everyone to achieve the American Dream;
Security--to protect the American Dream, both domestically and internationally, and;
Accountability--to ensure that the American Dream becomes not the birthright of the few, but the opportunity of all those who come to our shores.
What kind of music do you like? I like most anything. Really. I'm not picky.
Okay, so hair metal and most country music makes me cringe. But I think Kasey Chambers, Neko Case, and others can rock the country. Hair metal, on the other hand, is simply irredeemable.
