The picture to the left shows me on my 27th birthday- Oct. 23,1978. The 3 remaining are from March of 2003.
Introduction

 


 
My interests are many and varied. I enjoy most sports , but especially the winter Olympics. I play the guitar and compose music .
I lived in Dallas, Texas from December 17, 1990 until May 1 , 1999 . Before that, I lived briefly in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was born and raised in the Permian Basin area of west Texas. I earned an Associate Degree at Midland College, studied psychology at U.T.P.B. and computer science at Richland College.  Currently I am retired.
I enjoy books, movies , music , travel : my politics are progressive.
My philosophy of life is very simple : Live and let live !
As this is a presidential election year, I am advocating energy conservation, decriminalization of drugs and stiff penalties for animal cruelty and child abuse. I support adult literacy programs AND a substantial increase in the minimum wage. Under no circumstances should individuals or corporations be allowed to hide their assets in offshore tax havens. EVERYONE should cover his or her fair share or the tax burden in this country. However, I do not endorse any candidate. Here are some books I recommend : TREASURE ISLANDS by NICHOLAS SHAXSON ; CONSUMER'S UNION REPORT on LICIT and ILLICIT DRUGS by EDWARD BRECHER ; THE FIFTIES by DAVID HALBERSTAM ; THE PRIZE by DANIEL YERGIN.
