Grew up in New England, graduated Auburn High School, Gordon College, Tufts University, and University of Iowa. Taught sociology, political science, criminal justice at liberal arts college in Iowa (1982-2012). Enjoy writing, learning, research, reading, blogging, following news & current events, movies, music, genealogy. My refuge has always been the seacoast- sunshine, walking on shoreline, beach-combing, shelling, swimming, enjoying the tranquility and environment. I am politically independent, an advocate of social justice, human rights, equality, and stewardship of environment with scholarly interests in international security, public policy, the Presidency, political ideology, religion & politics, and social movements. Critical thinker, opinionated but open-minded: introspective, with a preference for small groups, and a circle of close friends. I find people fascinating and am intrigued by how the mind shapes human behavior.
