About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Retired
Location San Francisco, California, United States
Introduction Born in small town Ohio, I migrated to Seattle in 1982 for a job. In 1985 I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and have been here since that time. An unapologetic, unreconstructed modern feminist, I was active in the women's movement and partisan politics for many years. Now I sit back and take potshots at the cognoscenti.
Interests I'm a news junky; read several newspapers daily online, and watch many news shows on tv. I like films; documentaries, mysteries, actioners, and film noir. Get my films via Netflix. My real passion is politics, and I'm learning to paint - acrylics.
Favorite Movies My current favorite film is "The Best of Youth, " a six hour Italian film that left me wanting more. Other films I like: The Departed, The Good Shepherd, The Bourne Trilogy.
Favorite Music I enjoy jazz and R&B.
Favorite Books I read non-fiction and mysteries. The best book I've read in 2008 is "How to Break a Terrorist" by Matthew Alexander (a pseudonym). If you want to know what's really going on with interrogations in Iraq read this book. It's a real page turner.

Well, maybe they don't need them, but don't you think that some fish might like a bicycle?

Perhaps. If so, they should have one. It's all about having choices, after all.
