"Beware the beast, man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's
primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother
to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he
will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him! Send him to his
jungle home. For he is the harbinger of death."

- Dr. Zaius, Planet of the Apes

About Me:

• Advertising copywriter/radio producer, photographer, hunter/angler, gardener, amateur chef, ex-pugilist, Siamese cat aficionado and dyed-in-the-wool curmudgeon.

• Proud father of two (ages 18 and 13) and one of the maintainers over at liberal_talk and charts_and_maps.

• Ordained (non-denominational) minister.

• My journal covers a wide range of topics, including politics, sports, the environment, photography, cooking, science, sex, medicine, music, humor and random, unusual links that I happen to stumble across in my day-to-day wanderings 'cross the tubes.

• Please note that some of my entries contain profanity, gore or nudity (the latter two most often put under a courtesy cut). Check out my tag list for an idea of what to expect.

• All races, nationalities, sexual orientations and political views are welcome in my journal, as is friendly debate and gallows humor. I'm generally left of center, but if you're a rational and polite (21+) person by nature, I'm sure we'll get along swimmingly.

Obligatory Disclaimers:

• Adults only, please. If you're under 21, I would prefer if you didn't add me.

• If you do decide to add me, you should — eventually — expect to be offended in one way or another (i.e., I'll likely end up slaughtering your particular sacred cow at some point). Nothing personal. ☺

• Blatant assholes, wingnuts, troublemakers and trolls will be mercilessly chewed up, spit out and staked on a pole for public ridicule. No prisoners in this regard.

Content/Posting Rules:

• There aren't any, really (unless you're a racist, a homophobe or some sort of freak). First Amendment rules apply. Use your own judgment and I'm sure we'll both survive.

• Other than that, mi casa es su casa. Please visit (and comment) often. Stimulate me, and I'll do my best to return the favor.
