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.

Well-Wishes for (nearly) All

I recently saw a bumper sticker advocating a certain candidate. The tagline was: "Make Liberals Cry Again."

To me, this seems very telling - the argument for your candidate is to cause tens of millions of people to suffer.  

I don't want anyone* to suffer. I want everyone to have a secure income and not have to worry about healthcare. I want everyone to feel safe in public and to be able to marry whoever they want. I want everyone and their kids to have access to quality education that gives them access to many opportunities in life.

I find those policies more compelling than hating about half the country.

*OK, I can think of a few exceptions.
