About

MeI’ve been an Indiana journalist for more than 30 years and currently serve as editorial page editor of The News-Sentinel, a newspaper I delivered, for somewhat less money, at the age of 12. I was born in Eastern Kentucky, the son of a coal miner, but our family escaped before the sociologists found us. I had hoped to become the most famous media personality ever to graduate from Ball State University, but David Letterman beat me out. I served for three years in the U.S. Army, including a tour of Vietnam. I am an enthusiastic cook (specializing in baking), amateur musician and songwriter and fledgling videographer. Politically, I am a moderate conservative with strong libertarian tendencies and a few liberal skeletons in the closet. Philosophically, I am an empiric, consequentialist moralist, which means I think we all have an obligation to study the best evidence available to determine the most moral actions to take.

  1. Well, David Letterman may have more viewers, but based on your bio, I like you better.

    I’ve knew Leo Morris back in the early 1970s and based on those memories, I like him better than David Letterman too.

    Hey, I read nothing in your blogs about one of the better basketball teams in Indiana–whom you say? The Indiana Fever–WNBA, good team and great athletes that are not drugged out.
