About me

Gender MALE
Industry Consulting
Occupation Writer, researcher
Location Ottawa, Canada
Introduction I'm a progressive immigrant with annoying views. I have a trade-union background, and an academic one too. I have published a lot of poetry, three books, and numerous articles. My interest in blogging came out of the blue. Well, not entirely. I came across so much right-wing nonsense in the blogosphere that I thought I could add some left-wing ...wisdom. I have a good sense of humour and a short fuse. But I have sworn to myself that I will avoid Usenet and its low-level babble, and get into the substance of things here. So if people want to mix it up, I'll try (and maybe fail) to take the high road. You have been warned. :)
Interests Poetry, current events, anthropology, political action, cooking, and the usual enjoyments of human beings.
Favorite Movies Baghdad Cafe, The Ring, Eraserhead, Sixth Sense, About Schmidt, The Lavender Hill Mob, Big Fish....So many movies so little time....
Favorite Music Classical, blues, rock, jazz, folk (the real thing not fauxk)
Favorite Books The Book of Embraces by Eduardo Galeano
