My Politics

I'm a Cubs Fan, a Progressive Democrat, a historian, law school student, attorney and once ran for mayor of Columbia, Missouri.

I support a  lower voting age !

My Creative World:  JBC

JBC is a fictional world I developed back in about 1979.  JBC is a television network for kids, but it is so much more: it includes politics, sports, crime, drama and adventure.  

For an brief introduction to JBC read JBC for Dummies. (Not yet available will be by 1/1/03)

For a more indepth look read A Brief History of JBC, Warning it's long! (About 105 pages)

"Hello Tahra! This is my Web Page. I hope you like it. I am planning links to a lot of great sites." A quote from my first web page on gwis.edu in 1995.

They had a bad season in 2002, but are ready for 2003!

 Sorry That's it for the teams. I root for several other teams, but it's only the Cubs and the Sox, and of course the Runners, as far as I am concerned.

September 27, 2002-- As the usuperous Bush continues to occupy the White House, it's time to get active and make sure President Gore gets reelected in two years!
