Birthdate: November 1, 1946 (68 years old)
Interests: Music, movies, books, food, dogs, politics, people (they're kind of required for the rest of it).
Biography: Bear type old gay guy. The fires of the heart cool as we head towards the October, November or December of our lives.
I am no longer working and I am much happier than I have been in years. I miss very little of the non-profit sector I labored in for 40 years. Now I can be the highly influential, much-sought-after intellectual I always wanted to be -- provided I think of a highly influential much-sought-after idea. Ah well, one of the tasks of old age is recognizing that some things one wanted are not going to happen and other things one didn't want are.
On many days I feel like a young man (other days, not so much) and on most days I prefer to think of myself as at least a fairly radical person.

[Jan 28, 2015 - 6:27 PM]: a world, McDoodle, is conspiratorialists nattering on about government plots. The big earthquake? The government set it off to distract people from a hike in the tax rate. Obviously! I'm surprised stoners can keep it up long enough for plots.
[Jan 28, 2015 - 12:58 AM]: Hoax theorists have to have terribly compelling theories to win the day; I don't hear any compelling theory as to why the US GOV wrecked WTC I, II, and VII, if they did indeed. why why why?
[Jan 28, 2015 - 12:57 AM]: suppose I grant that it sure looks like a dynamite demolition. What was the point? Some people think the whole thing was a hoax (They also don't believe we landed on the moon.)
[Jan 27, 2015 - 12:44 AM]: Q, dear, do you know how long it takes to set up a controlled demolition explosion? How would you keep it a secret for months, while you were waiting for the hijackers to carry out the dastardly plan (which the US gov was going to blah blah blah
