This blog is an attempt to record my thoughts, forcing me think about issues that matter to me and to correct the typos as I go along.
What matters to me?
My family: a lovely and talented wife and two lively doggies.
My self: I’m fat, and I’m still learning to be cool with myself.
Syracuse, NY: its neighborhoods, families, and culture.
Community Organizing: helping low income families find and wield the power needed to improve housing and bring financial justice to our neighborhoods.
Bruce Springsteen: and all mixtures of rock, blues, punk, R & B, soul, reggae.
Boston Red Sox baseball: heaven is located somewhere just above the Green Monster.
Syracuse University basketball, lacrosse: you grow up here, you bleed Orange.
Central NY as seen through the eyes of someone who is a community organizer; a smart ass and a homebody. Welcome to my world.
