What brought you to Atheist Universe?
I'm a semi-retired electrical engineer who has a rather eclectic background, never mind a few miles on the odometer. I suppose I was an "apatheist" for quite a while - largely indifferent to the whole issue of gods - but after 9/11 and the more blatant appearance of evangelicals and Dominionists on the scene, my atheism has finally come to the fore.

Other interests include music, especially classical, high-end stereo and home theater (and with that, CD and DVD collecting), enthusiasm for cars and motoring, single-malt whisky and biking.

Donald John Trump – A Cautionary Tale

Posted on November 9, 2020 at 8:00am 34 Comments

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

-- H.L. Mencken, On Politics: A Carnival of Buncombe



Four years ago, the United States voted a political unknown into its highest office, at least in part on the pretense that perhaps a…

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 1933 – 2020

Posted on September 19, 2020 at 8:00am 15 Comments

I was doing something at my computer yesterday evening when my wife laid the news on me: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died. My reaction wasn’t quite as though I had been punched in the gut, but it wasn’t much better than that. In the best of times, a loss of that nature would be considerable and its impact profound. Considering the current state of both American politics and jurisprudence, this news is potentially cataclysmic.



From the time of her entry into the…

Service – Trump Doesn't Get It

Posted on September 4, 2020 at 11:00am 25 Comments

The following is an excerpt from The Atlantic, dated 3 September, 2020:



On Memorial Day 2017, Trump visited Arlington National Cemetery, a short drive from the White House. He was accompanied on this visit by John Kelly, who was then the secretary of homeland security, and who would, a short time later, be named the White House chief of staff. The two men were set to visit Section 60, the 14-acre area of the cemetery that is the burial ground for those killed in America’s most…
