About Me:
I'm a geek, grandiose in nature, kind to those I love, fiercely wicked to those I deem as enemies. I am fascinated by things in motion, be they real or

fiction. I am diabetic type 2 and I control my blood sugar through diet and medicine, but not exercise. Mrs. Alendar is my love and my treasure and

well within the Circle of Trust, as is her family. My son by birth is high on my list of cool people. I'm biased.

My previous wife of 13 years and mother to my son died of Leukemia. I have 2 adopted children, both have moved away. My daughter has an ornery daughter

who I find very cute since I don't have to raise her.

I have one older sister (post-Bhuddist) in New Mexico, and 2 Christian parents still living together (barely) in Chatanooga, an aunt in Santa Fe, an

uncle somewhere in Maryland, a grandmother in Baton Rouge who is an Atheist, and no pets, though if I did I'm sure they'd be Hindu.

I've lived in Perkasie, Dublin, Albuquerque, Denver, Pittsfield, North Adams, Manhattan, Climax (Colorado), Baton Rouge, Dalton, Las Cruces, Aurora, and

I'm sure I'm missing somewhere. I'm a business banking programmer, I work from home, and my son is learning to program, but wants to write zombie

games, which is much more fun than banking!

I read, mostly through audio-books, and am most interested in Greek history and philosophy. I try to avoid politics but I'm easily drawn in and soon

find myself blathering on about subjects I know nothing about, and breathing heavily and in need of some heavy sedation. I rent, though my wife owns,

and we plan to settle down in Idaho and watch the country go up in flames from our porch. I love making my small family happy, and that and a rousing

good Plato dialogue and I'm set for life. I enjoy beautiful flowers, massive computers, American cars, and watching the Dallas Cowboys eak through

another season.

If I have a happy wife, and a goodly son, then I will return to dust with narry a wimper and a wide smile.

To the interesting people

A note of thanks. I don't think of you often enough. I get caught up in the crazies and malcontents. Its more natural for me to see the world in the light of mad firelight, as I think the primitive world must have been. The stories in Caesar's Gallic Wars of the barbarous Gauls and the rituals of African civilizations have always delighted my eager need to see the paucity of Man. Perhaps the world seems safer if its careening off the table.



But for a moment from the ravages of… Continue

Is Time real?

I'm concerned about the nature of time. We treat it as a separate dimension, yet it does not behave like the other 3. We don't go back and forth along it, yet we treat it as if we were moving forward. There is no real "forward" motion. My hair does not blow downwind in the time tunnel. Motion is the change of position relative to a non-moving object. But everyone is "moving" at the same speed, so we aren't really moving, are we?? We talk about the past, but we really mean past states. There is… Continue

Side affects of the worsening economy

Perhaps this is better phrased as a question, but since I'm hiding in the blogosphere, I'll phrase it as blog.



I was noticing my NetFlicks RSS feed on my profile page was stale and looked pretty silly. It still shows the last three movies I rented from them and returned unopened. I was curious about Jeeves & Wooster one day and added them to my request list, but by the time they came I had lost interest. I'm a fickle boy.



I cancelled my subscription after that in an… Continue

Science vs. Nature

Man's nature, I mean. I've read some amazing things going on in the science world. I'm sure Zendog sees it as the beginning of the Great Conspiracy to begin human experimentation, but as paranoid and cynical as I am I can't see it as bad.



They are finding molecules that fight viruses now. Imagine that! Antibiotics have been a dead end and everyone has known it, yet we haven't been able to turn away from the cliff. The drug companies love the fact that antibiotics gradually fail and… Continue

What is the measure of what government should do with our money?

I'm curious what people think. The Constitution had some clear ideas about it, all based on common sense requirements. The need to raise an army, deliver the mail. I would say that the whole document reeks of common sense.



But there really aren't any good "except" clauses. Like, "except when to do so would bankrupt the citizenry". There's no real limitations put in place on spending, only that laws must be made to levy new taxes. Much of law is tax law. New taxes, new levies make up… Continue

Here's the story behind the story: my psychiatric assessment from 1992. Nothing in there about my attention-seeking behavior. Clever of you to pick up on that!

Here's the actual court case concerning my job termination. Someone spread a rumor that I was gay -- I complained about it -- I got fired. I sued. I lost. The employer said I was crazy.

Would someone know why he is content? Why would I know why I am tormented?

Yeah, I changed it, so what? (not happy with it yet, weird editing software.)
