About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Articles about Biden (from an enewsletter)

More than a year before this year’s Democratic National Convention stressed Biden’s personal history of tragedy, Politico Magazine’s Michael Kruse wrote about grief as Biden’s political “superpower.” [I linked to that in this piece, but it is worth revisiting.]

Biden’s efforts to overcome his childhood stutter were the subject of a powerful piece by The Atlantic’s John Hendrickson, who also stutters. It changed the way I think of Biden’s frequent verbal stumbles.
