Story
Tagline
If you are paying me to think on your behalf I want the money up front.
Introduction
Politics, technology, economics, photography, activism...  these are some of the things that drive me.

Bragging rights
I once ported Zen and the Art of the Internet to Microsoft's short-lived LIT ebook format.

All nations appear to have been sensible of their value, whether we recall to the reader’s mind, the papyrus of the Egyptians; the parchment of the Romans; the pictures of the Peruvians, or the palm leaves of Sandwich Islanders.

Maybe I'm going blind, but I don't see the dragons hanging around the edge of the earth. What's up with that?

Your tax dollars at work. :) This was produced to help people getting SNAP benefits stretch their food dollars while still getting decent meals.
While a healthy diet is the cornerstone to good health, meeting that goal can be a challenge. That is why we are delighted to offer this publication to the public.
