Author Bios

I am the lead author for this blog (choosing not to use my real name for personal and professional reasons). I am originally from the Dallas area, but have also lived in West Texas and Pennsylvania. I am currently a student working towards my Ph.D. in Linguistics and Bilingualism. Personally, I consider myself to be a political moderate: I voted for Ralph Nader in the 2004 election (because I think we need a strong 3rd party and because I didn’t like either George W. Bush or John Kerry); I voted for Obama in 2008. I also think I have been leaning heavily left since the 2008 campaign because of the rational sensibilities of President Obama and the lack of a strong moderate Republican candidate. I decided to start this blog because I feel like I can inject some reason into political debates (and because my girlfriend is tired of listening to me and I need a place to get my views out).
