About me

Gender Male
Introduction My blogging began at Newshoggers and I've had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars and The Agonist. Middle-aged Scottish ex-pat now married to a wonderful Texan. Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. Worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd's of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet.
