About

I’ve been an Indiana journalist for more than 30 years and currently serve as    editorial page editor of The News-Sentinel, a newspaper I delivered, for somewhat less money, at the age of 12. I was born in Eastern Kentucky, the son of a coal miner, but our family escaped before the sociologists found us. I had hoped to become the most famous media personality ever to graduate from Ball State University, but David Letterman beat me out. I served for three years in the U.S. Army, including a tour of Vietnam. I am an enthusiastic cook (specializing in baking), amateur musician and songwriter and fledgling videographer. Politically, I am a moderate conservative with strong libertarian tendencies and a few liberal skeletons in the closet. Philosophically, I am an empiric, consequentialist moralist, which means I think we all have an obligation to study the best evidence available to determine the most moral actions to take.
