Height:  70 Weight:  200 lbs. Alumni Status:  1986 grad, BA in Govt. and Econ.
Location:  Wheaton, IL Favorite Baseball Team:  Chicago White Sox
Natural Enemies:  Communists, Wahabbists, Miami fans

Athletic Ability: Marginal at best. Decent golfer. Formerly decent runner. Sadly, greatest athletic achievement is winning dorm ping-pong championship (unless you count surviving Marine Corps OCS).

Sartorial Style: Prefer casual to dressy. Neat, not too flashy. I like the basics.

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Hennessy Manhattan; Old Fashioned. Occasionally a few margaritas or some sangria with a good Mexican or tapas meal.

Political Philosophy: Conservative. Elected and re-elected to the DuPage County Board. I believe in low taxes, limited government, active U.S. pursuit of human rights abroad, including military force where necessary, a strong military, a modest "safety net," strong but reasonable environmental laws that use good capitalist principles, minimal government interference in the private sector, and judges who know their proper role and practice "original intent" jurisprudence. Fiercely patriotic.

Religious Philosophy: Devout Catholic, though I don't attend church as often as I should. I don't believe in a God who would sentence people to burn in hell for not praising Him in a way slightly different from our own. Strongly pro-life, which now includes a growing anti-death penalty component.

Musical Favorites: Classic rock--Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, U2, Eagles, as well as other classic musicians such as Billy Joel, John Melencamp, etc.

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: NA.

Miscellaneous Data: I enjoy the debates and discussions on this Board. I am a better thinker for it.
Favorite quotes include: "The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare." "Every man dies. Not every man really lives." "Pain is just weakness leaving the body."
