Hello, or welcome back, as the case may be. We’ve made some changes to the site, updated the material and added pieces heard on the radio.

The essays are organized by category. Click on a heading that interests you and you’ll see a list of columns with hints as to their content.

I write about anything that piques my curiosity and a thousand things that move me. I lean left politically and my take is that humans of all stripes are amusing and lovable. Except for the ones that aren’t.

I hope you find something you like here. If you do, stick around for a while. I’ll bet you find more. If not, thanks for visiting and take care of yourself out there.
