About me

Gender MALE
Location United States
Introduction I am a Christian, a Calvinist, and a deacon in a Reformed Baptist church (2d London Baptist Confession). I am retired from the practice of law and have an interest in theology (particularly reformed theology) and logic. Also see my blog posts labeled About Me.
Interests Theology, chess, logic, writing, movies, weight-lifting, and much more.
Favorite Movies Lord of the Rings trilogy; Contact (Jodie Foster); Gattaca; The Truman Show (Jim Carrey); The Great Escape (Steve McQueen, and a great cast); Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the Pixar movies. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen (apart from Monty Python and the Holy Grail) is It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.
Favorite Music Good music.
Favorite Books I often find myself reading technical material relating to my interests. I would rather hear a story than read one, so I know more about movies than literature (if you insist on distinguishing between them). But here is my list: The Lord of the Rings (see movies); Shelby Foote's marvelous Civil War trilogy; the Jeeves & Wooster books of the incomparable P. G. Wodehouse; The Great Gatsby; Our Town (do plays count?); August 1914. I like science fiction, and the best from that genre is Battlefield Earth (I know, I know).

Chicken monkey shoes?

I am supposed to answer a "random" question. And this one truly appears to me to be random. The question is "Chicken monkey shoes?" I can derive no meaning from that question and any answer to it would be equally meaningless. But I will try for one: 3.14159265358 Quine.
