Born in Philadelphia in 1943, married Linda in 1968, 2 kids. We're Evangelical Christians, not at all churchy. Spent most of my career in communications facilities design. We now live on Social Security, and I receive a Medicaid paycheck for caring for Linda. Lived in a handful of countries, traveled to many more, and for 10 years I was VP of an international NGO serving the disabled poor. Set up an office in Kabul, Afghanistan in 1998, and yes, the Taliban are repulsive, but that's the price of the entry ticket.
Linda is disabled from polio in 1948, and lives in a power wheelchair, now a quadriplegic. Hasn't kept her from traveling to Afghanistan and a dozen other countries. For more about Linda, she has a website.
We're passionate about politics. Love our organic garden. Greatly enjoy writing, and find Ricochet to be our real fun family.
