Thank you for visiting.
My name is Daniel Howard. I grew up in Chicago, and I live in
San Francisco Brooklyn
Mountain View Sunnyvale, CA. I was born in 1976:
the year of the American Bicentennial. I have a Bachelor's degree in
English Rhetoric, but I make my living as a Systems Administrator.
I enjoy writing, and I started publishing on the web in 1995, and
an online journal in 1996. I will introduce you further on the Welcome page, or you can start exploring on
your own . . .

Republicans are loyal to their party. Their Fascist will run again. He’s got a lot more charisma than Ted Cruz.
Two Billion Humans
“We get there by fast-tracking two important human rights: One, full gender equity and schooling for all girls, through at least secondary education. And, two, affordable and accessible family-planning services for all. If we could bring the global fertility rate — voluntarily: I do not support coercion of any kind — to an average of one child per woman, the human population would start to approach 2 billion within four generations.”
