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.

Very neat, except this, which is not actually true. "I am not saying animals aren’t able to reason at all; they do. But obviously we do it at a very different level, partly because we have language we can use to communicate with others and solve problems jointly or learn how others did in the past. We are the only animal on this planet that can do that."

Pssshhh...! Right, Joe! Crows and ravens are highly intelligent and able to do all those things...they can do all these things mentioned:
"have language...to communicate with others and solve problems jointly or learn how others did in the past".

I heard the bird are even forming a coordinated chicken zombie mob attack in Chicago this weekend. Be careful out there, Joe! lol ;)
