A blog about politics, current events and consumer culture.

Absent some compelling item over the next few days, the Curmudgeon is taking a holiday break. We'll be back before the New Year to do a wrap (or maybe a rap) on the old year. (And our thanks to the creator of the cute little holiday penguin above.)
In summer '05, after 21 years of law practice in a large firm, I quit to pursue my true passion, writing. I'm 51 years old, married, with two children, boys ages 12 and 15.
I watch too much television, read too many newspapers and magazines, and have too much time on my hands. I love politics and I hate lousy service and crummy products and bad science.
In April 2009 my first book, Landstrike, was published. Landstrike "is the gripping story of Hurricane Nicole from its birth in the Atlantic Ocean to its catastrophic rampage up New York City's Hudson River." The book is available from Xlibris press, Xlibris.com.
I hope you'll find something entertaining or inspiring on my blog.
