I am a Christian IT professional (a.k.a. Geek) who likes to read, write, and muse about morality and worldview as they apply to public policy. In person I have an active and somewhat sardonic sense of humor. In print I repress this trait and try to avoid saying anything that could give offense when not offered with a broad grin (which the reader can’t see). I strive to be genuine in my dealings with everyone and to be frank, straightforward, and kind to friend and foe alike. I believe that the defense of truth is too important to be tainted with anger and malice or crippled by the fear of disapproval. For me, this is what it means to be "speaking the truth in love."
