EJHill+

Chief Media Officer

Thirty years in television production. Living in a midwestern city in the productive custody of his wife and four children (Baby Girl, Marine, Future Tony Winner & Xerox). Unrelenting, unrepentant conservative. Needs a better temperament that equals his photoshop skills. Will probably die broke but believes more in freedom than the welfare state.

Max

Site Maintenance

A Maine native, Max now lives in New Hampshire with his wife, who is an editor at National Review, and their three cats in a c. 1790 house built by an American Revolution war veteran. Max was pretty liberal in college, but then moved to New York City, which, though it's the most liberal city in the world, ironically made him into a conservative. He is a classic neoconservative: someone who was liberal and moved rightward initially over concerns about national security and foreign policy. Max does a number of things for Ricochet, including maintenance, project management, customer service, and some writing from time to time. He writes about his adopted home town, Tuftonboro, New Hampshire, at tuftonboro.net.
