I am the system administrator for a small subnet of a large computer network at the University of Tennessee. I am active in the Society for Creative Anachronism in the Kingdom of Meridies. I am a Laurel with three active apprentices. My principle medium is wood, although I am also a blacksmith and a cook. I write because I have stuff to say, and I hope one day to make a buck from it.
I am an unrepentant capitalist who thinks that the current “bailout” approach to economic crisis is a great way to prolong it. I’m socially liberal and fiscally conservative. As a small-l libertarian, I hate what’s come to be called Big Government. In my experience, anything the government is put in charge of will be done the most expensive and least effective way possible. And that pretty much sums me up.
