I'm a a political geek, decidedly liberal, a military wife (retired), and the mother of four young adults. I've been privileged to live in other countries, visit other nations, and live in and travel many places in the great (and very, very large) United States.
Other than politics, I enjoy reading mysteries and thrillers, along with new and old history textbooks and the occasional dictionary. My love for research and statistics is a tad on the abnormal side. But I also love to create beaded jewelry, which my kids tell me slightly "evens out" my geek to normal human ratio.
Read CivicCommentary, my WordPress blog. I'll admit I've slacked off for nearly a year, but I'm back!
