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.

Do Blue Lives Matter?

According to a recent episode of The Weeds (Law and Order here), Covid has killed more cops this year than all other causes combined. If we really cared about cops at all (and other frontline workers), we would have actually dealt with the virus, as they did in Germany (a population-dense country with a large immigrant community; see here). 

PS, from Twitter: "I'd say two of the things I miss most from the Obama years are being able to breathe air outside and being able to breathe air inside."
