I am a journalist and erstwhile web designer from East Tennessee. Home is the eastern border of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area. I write for a living, but this isn’t it … because nobody is paying me for my opinion. (Well, the New York Post did. But just once. And Donald Trump retweeted it.) I was Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2006. Topics here include politics, the weather, Tennessee Vols football, and whatever else interests me.
