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 . . .

The police spokesperson later clarified they were “joking around.”
We live our lives in boxes: houses, offices, cars, smartphones, TVs … technologies that are supposed to make the world smaller and more connected, but too often we find ourselves disconnected from each other, and isolated.
Warren is accused, in plain language, of being uppity — a woman who has the bad grace to be smarter than the men around her, without downplaying it to assuage their egos. But running in a presidential race is all about proving that you are smarter than the other guy. By demanding that Warren disguise her exceptional talents, we are asking her to lose. Thankfully, she’s not listening. She is a smart woman, after all.
Humanity will muddle through on a hostile planet amidst a mass extinction.
As a middle-aged, middle class, uncomfortable person who supports the status quo, it is the radicals speaking out for good stewardship of Earth, and the radicals speaking out for the idea that people should be free from want and free from fear that most appeal to me.
I took a few “vacation” days to attend the Planning Commissioner’s Academy in Long Beach.
