BA Honors degree in history and political science, then - like most liberal arts grads - into corporate America as a proper wage slave for 33 years. Attained by freedom from corporate life in 2003. So it goes...
My primary hobby is work (certified workaholic, with papers...shrink says at least I'm "high-functioning"!). Beyond that, books, films, political blogging and being a faithful "cheesehead". Unabashed Left-winger by any measure and student of 9/11 and other tragic events in the post-Warren "Omission" era.
Favorite writer? Ian McEwen vs. Kurt Vonnegut (too close to call)
Favorite poet? e.e. cummings - as you may figure out from a subtle reference in this bio.
Favorite film? Miller's Crossing - the first serious masterpiece by the Coen Bros, only now matched but not surpassed by NO Country For Old Men.
Favorite book? Canticle for Lebowitz by Walter Miller Jr. Post-apocalyptic novel spanning three eras after man(un)kind tries to obliterate itself and almost succeeds. Fiat Homo, Fiat Lux and Fiat Voluntas Tua (or close to that; no Latin scholar!) being the three chapters in one of the best kept secrets in the history of fiction.
And that, then, is me.
Voting for? Dennis Kucinich...assuming I/we get the chance.
