I am a white man born and raised in the American South. I have a wife and two boys and a dog. My love of travel has brought me around the world. I like music, food, and good weather :).
I began this blog out of concern for a group of threats that are eroding civil society, human decency, civic institutions, and the natural world. These threats include a rising lack of respect for science, the influence of money in politics, and the rise of religious extremism.
