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.

Ukraine Endgame

Listening to Ezra Klein interview Fiona Hill on his latest podcast, Anne and I came to a pretty unhappy likely outcome: Putin sets off a nuke in Kyiv to force Ukraine to surrender, but will tell the world that it was Ukraine who set off the nuke.

The West would be outraged and say a lot, but we (at least with the current Administration) would not start WW III and end civilization in the northern hemisphere. It feels like the only way Putin saves face. It does not seem outside the realm of possibilities, given what he's done

If Putin starts talking about Ukraine trying to get a nuclear weapon, or having saved a nuke from the USSR days, Anne and I will be even more nervous.
