What’s this all about?

ELEGY AND IRONY is a snapshot of my life – the life of a man in mid-career who still has a hunger and enthusiasm for new frontiers.

I talk about everything here:  Current events, history, music, politics, love, sex, art, and life.  I often post about media matters, as well as LGBT issues, since I am part of both communities.
