Introduction I don't know. I need to make something. There are probably already too many words in the world, and here I am adding to the pile. But they don't take up much space, will never get sent to a landfill, and will die with me. How bad can they be?
Interests Spending quality time with my wife and children. Reading, mostly old stuff, history, science.
Favorite Movies Miller's Crossing, Citizen Kane, Manhattan, Once Upon a Time in the West, A Room with a View, The Third Man, Koyaanisqatsi
Favorite Music Van Morrison, The Beatles, Billie Holiday, Radiohead, Jolie Holland, Louis Armstrong
Favorite Books War and Peace, What's the Matter with Kansas, Into Thin Air, Guns Germs and Steel, Our Inner Ape, The Silmarillion, The Civil War: A Narrative

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?

This is a really stupid question. Pirates still exist, and they don't have eye patches or parrots, and they sometimes kill people. See? I am no fun.
