    Are you published?:
    No
    Favorite Books:
    The Omnivore's Dilemma, And the Band Played On, The Powers that Be, The World Without Us, The Brethren, Bitter Fruit... I guess I should add some fiction: Catcher in the Rye, A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Kite Runner, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo... Hard for me to think of other fictional pieces that deeply impressed me. I'm an especially tough critic of fiction, which makes it really odd that I am now a writer of fiction.
    Favorite Quotes:
    I have a few. Two are:
    You must do the thing you think you cannot do. -- Eleanor Roosevelt
    and
    It's not just about me and my dream of doing nothing. It's about all of us. - Peter Gibbons, of Office Space
    Religious Beliefs:
    • Agnostic
    Political Views:
    • Liberal
    This pic is old. But I like it.

    20th Century History -- esp. Prohibition, the Depression, WWII, really from about 1913-1984 or so.
    Current Events -- U.S. based politics, and international issues particularly with respect to fair trade, and shared dismay over a significant portion of US foreign policy over the last 60 years.
