Join Date:

TV Writer/Producer. Proud, old-fashioned, 60's-style liberal and left-wing political/satirical blogger. Admitted New York City and restaurant snob, also over-romantically and unrealistically smitten with London and Paris.

Blogs Owned

A satiric look at politics from a distinctive left-leaning view; with forays into music and.. daily-life commentary - not nearly as boring, nor an iota as dry, humorless or pretentious as this.. pedestrian description suggests.
