About Me

I am who I am who I am who am I?

Hi there!

I am thirty-something.

I am married to my amazing wife K with two lovely daughters, A and B.

I live in a college town in the South and am employed by a major state university. (No, it’s not Athens, but good guess.)

I have a law degree and a law license, but I no longer practice law. (It seemed like a good idea at the time and I had a scholarship.) So yes, IAAL.

The study and practice of law, is above all, the study of people. You learn a lot about people by practicing law.

I like to read about the world. I enjoy reading about psychology and economics. How people relate to other people. Why we act the way we do. I love science. I study life. And then I blog about it.

But you can’t understand this world without understanding what is beyond this world. I am Catholic. I’ve come and gone over the years, but I’ve come to the realization that I can’t really be anything else. The kind of Catholic who goes to mass every Sunday, but often arrives late. The kind of Catholic who good Catholics think is a bad Catholic and everyone else thinks is annoyingly devout.

I’m strangely comfortable with this, except that I’m pretty sure that being comfortable with this is a sin. Aaah, Catholic guilt.

K is not Catholic. She thinks I need therapy, and I probably do.

So that’s my story.  What’s yours?

One thought on “About Me

  1. James,
    I was recently reading a post on patheos about issues with BSA and GSUSA, and noted your comments about how a priority is given when it’s the boys but when it’s the girls (crickets chirping). I would agree with you. I would ask you to email me if you would be so kind at the address below. I am part of an international organization that is an association of the faithful of pontifical right, and I am trying to emphasize that we need this program for Catholic girls as much as we do for Catholic boys. The movement and results in Europe are amazing and we are growing here in the US. Please see http://www.fneexplorers.com, or our first group in the US’s website at http://www.northstarexplorers.org. Also on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/fneexplorersusa. I don’t know if you would be interested in such a thing for your daughters, but I’d like you to see that this does exist, is a beautiful thing, and I know our girls love being part of it.
    Thanks for your time and God Bless.
    Yours in Christ,
