Favorite Food: Besides my wife’s cooking? It’s a toss up between fresh sushi or well prepared Indian food.

Favorite quote: “In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.” – Mark Twain
