Introduction My name is Michael Brady. I am a middle-class, middle-aged, white guy from middle America (not that there's anything wrong with that). My interests are varied. I aspire to appreciate the diversity implicit in the big picture while diving deep into issues which intrigue me. I enjoy dry humor, sharp wit, deep irony, roasted game, red wine, bourbon, and strong coffee! Lots of coffee...dark roast, no room.
Interests Anthropology, astronomy, critical thinking, education, ethics, firearms, friends, history, horror, humor, hunting, leadership, memoir, movies, outdoors, reading, religion, risk, science, security, service
