Introduction World citizen and registered Independent: Loner, rebel, Gandhian, expatriate-in-waiting, award-winning journalist, do-gooder to a fault. About AF&O/The Armchair Activist/Grateful Dread Public Radio: This project has existed in some form since 1996, from the old Grateful Dread BBS to the early incarnations of Facts and Opinions (, FANDO Log (blogger), the Armchair Activist and armchair-activism GLBT (the first domain I purchased), with GDPR throughout. My vocation (passion) has many goals -- self-expression, information, and inspiration among them -- but its paramount aims are to encourage people to make a better, cleaner, fairer world and to foster world peace. Lofty aims, but we have to start somewhere. Consider this my small bit for the effort. "Let mine be a voice for peace." - Dan Fogelberg

In the dream where you show up to school naked, why do you never go swimming?

I just feel better wearing a suit in the pool.
