Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.

  • Roy Rogers had something expensive done to Trigger’s remains, if I recall correctly.

    Some folks would make a diamond from their late spouse’s remains, if they could. And some folks love their pet more devotedly than their spouse.

    As for me, I prefer to bury a pet in a significant place and know that its body will be converted into new life there.
