Frequently given answers

What do you do for a living?

I teach my daughter, age 7, at home. So you could say I’m a home educator. It is a full time job.

That’s it?

Of course not.

I think I may know you. Are you the guy that…?

Fine. You really want to know? I’m from Shreveport, Louisiana, USA. But don’t hold that against me. I was a student at Caddo Parish Magnet High School. I graduated in 1983. After high school, I was a student in the Six Year Accelerated Medical Program at LSUS/LSUMC and earned my M.D. in 1989. I spent several years at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and then at the Mayo Clinic. I left medicine several years ago and worked writing iOS and Mac applications for a while.

Can I like you on Facebook?

No. I’m not on Facebook. As of January 2016, you can find me there. I eventually gave in and went on Facebook in order to stay in touch with friends and family after a long move.

How can I reach you?

Use my contact page.

You write about a lot of stuff. Why?

I’m opinionated and I don’t sleep enough.
