Part fiction, part truth, part well-reasoned commentary, and part psychotic ramblings, these are the unfiltered thoughts of a white, middle class dad fumbling through marriage and life with stepkids and who believes that the religious right (and by definition much of the leadership of today's Republican Party) is made up of a bunch of utter asshats who shouldn't have a say in modern-day America. However, I believe enough in the Bill of Rights and personal liberties that I will defend their right to spew whatever line of hatred they wish to wrongly justify with their twisted reading of the Bible -- so long as they do not act upon those horrid rationalizations.
Seriously though, I mostly write about my family, what's going on in my life, and outside of that, the things that interest me most: Philadelphia sports, baseball, science fiction (both SF and sci-fi), the music I love, and probably a little more politics than any self-professed conservative Republican will like. I one day hope to resume a life living in the Philadelphia area -- my adopted hometown and the one area in the world I am emotionally connected to.
