Political Philosophy: Registered member of the Party of Death, Gay Marriage, and Terrorist Appeasement. Now, if you'll excuse me, the War on Christmas isn't going to wage itself.

Religious Philosophy: Proud Cafeteria Catholic. The Church has been good to me and to my family, but I can't suppress an innate skepticism of anyone who claims to speak on God's behalf, and I can't quite fathom how something truly divine could inspire something as hierarchical, bureaucratic, and profitable as organized religion.

Musical Favorites: The Clash, the Stones, Elvis Costello, Midnight Oil, Smashing Pumpkins, Matthew Sweet, REM, Beastie Boys, Concrete Blonde, Pretenders, Wilco, Rage Against the Machine, Muddy Watters, Heartless Bastards, New Pornographers, Cake, Gone Daddy Finch.

-- Lou Holtz

Miscellaneous Data: Overworked and overweight litigator and father of one who should really be getting back to work and/or home.
