As a political activist for decades, I have rejoiced in victories for the people and mourned in defeats. I chose the pen name "George Washington" because - as Washington's biographies show - he wasn't a very good strategist, but he was incredibly persistent. He hung in again and again during the worst setbacks and bleakest winters for years. That is what made him great: he simply refused to quit. George Washington therefore inspires me to be a life-long activist.
As an attorney and former law school professor, I am a firm believer that no one - even the high and mighty - are above the law.
As someone trained in environmental systems analysis, I am always looking at how different trends influence each other ... and the big picture.
