As a retired university professor (neuroscientist and cognitive-behavioural psychologist), I seek rational, evidence-based (as opposed to emotional or 'gut feeling') discussions and understanding of political, social, and economic issues and events. I am a proud citizen of both the USA and Canada. As such, I both cherish and exercise the rights, freedoms, and opportunities granted to me in each. I am a life-long learner and fitness enthusiast.
I weigh both sides of an issue, but more often than not find the liberal perspective as being more logical, as well as more just, economically, morally, and socially. The media journalists I find most appealing and compelling are: 1) Fareed Zakaria, 2) Thomas Friedman, and 3) Paul Krugman.
