I'm a tree-hugging, Bush-bashing wacko commie liberal living in Minneapolis with two cats, hundreds of books, and more pairs of Birkenstocks than I'm prepared to admit to. My obsessions include baseball, books, writing and knitting. I'm a member of the Bloodwake Pirates re-enactment group and its auxilliary, the Ladies of Tortuga Knitting and Keelhauling Society. My heroes, in no particular order, are Harry Potter, Satchel Paige, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Bobby Sands, Paul Wellstone, Sheila Wellstone and my tree-hugging, wacko commie liberal mom.
"I am not anti-gun. I'm pro-knife. Consider the merits of the knife. In the first place, you have to catch up with someone in order to stab him. A general substitution of knives for guns would promote physical fitness. We'd turn into a whole nation of great runners. Plus, knives don't ricochet. And people are seldom killed while cleaning their knives." --Molly Ivins
