Retired civil servant, golf whenever I can.  Swim every other day before golf. Live in the Metro D.C. area..never got Potomac fever.

Love to read, watch CSI, 24, reruns of the Godfather, Citizen Cane, To Kill a Mockingbird, Casablanca, Room at the Top, and other classics.

Passionate about: 1. using ocean energy as the ultimate solution to renewable, clean energy and global warming issues. 2.We need to tax what we do the most and that is consume. A graduated/modified income/consumption tax would resolve much of our revenue generation/allocation of resources problems.  Particularly given the skewedness in income distribution and the growing regressiveness in the so-called progressive income tax that now suffocates the middle class.
