I'm a journalist, a writer who looks at society and tries to understand, then analyze and explain its many complex parts as they relate to each other to help people better understand their own lives and what's both necessary and important to their lives. My weekly column appears in 30+ print newspapers and several dozen online newspapers. I also write books, often fusing social issues and history. I was a newspaper and magazine reporter and editor, and a writer-producer for multi-screen multimedia productions. I also retired as a professor of mass communications.
