About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

From Nicholas Kristof

Judge Barrett seems an intelligent and admirable individual. But my column argues that her judicial philosophy has been on the wrong side of history on many of the big issues of my lifetime, from racism to LGBT bigotry....

One of my old friends told me recently that she couldn’t stomach Trump but is strongly “pro-life” and concerned about Joe Biden for that reason. I made the point that if the aim is to reduce the number of abortions, the best way to accomplish that is to provide Title X reproductive health programs that offer free family planning for at-risk young people, reducing unplanned pregnancies. Trump has cut funding for such clinics; Biden would bolster the funding. It sounds as if she will vote for Biden.
