Member of the Progressive Democrats of America, and the Democratic Socialists of America. My main interests include socialism, environmental causes, and fly fishing, probably in that order. Spending personal time on a river could be number one, but without activism we probably wouldn't have a river to enjoy. I also enjoy reading, with "Les Miserables" my favorite book of all time, and perhaps "Waldon" coming in a close second. That's me in the middle at an anti Bush/war rally in 2008. My very good friend Don, of 20 years, is on the left, both of us Viet Nam vintage. And on the right, we all know Mr. Reaper; G.W.B's best friend.
