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 three lively doggies.

Syracuse, NY: its neighborhoods, families, and culture.

Organizing: helping people with disabilities break down the societal barriers to a free and independent life.

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.

Central NY as seen through the eyes of someone who is an activist, a smart ass and a homebody. Welcome to my world.
