I’m a Boomer crusader who has been trying to smash the state for 40 years now. I’ve lived in cities large and small on both coasts and in between, and am currently happily ensconced in the bucolic hills of Southernmost Illinois. I make my living in the publishing world. The internet makes it possible for me to put food on the table. Lumbering and forestry, gardening and maybe some chickens will make it possible if other means go away.
