About meI am a leading-edge Boomer and something of an old-fashioned geezer. By that I mean that I read newspapers. I can blog and all that, but I have to read at least ONE newspaper (preferably more) every day.

I read lots of history. Lately, I have been enthralled with the time period moving out of the Dark Ages into the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. Innovative, revolutionary seminal minds like Fibonacci, Descartes, Spinoza, Montesquieu and Blaise Pascal fascinate me.

I also like a good detective novel like John Sanford's Lucas Davenport series.
