Living in Colorado, near Fort Collins. Retired (@55) engineer, who worked at IBM, GE, Caterpillar, and ran a small medical centrifuge company for a while... Played with stocks for many years, and have gotten fairly good at reading the Wall Street crowd's groupthink. When I think the GroupThink is wrong, I invest accordingly. Amongst my many failures, I called a few good ones...ie "housing never goes down" (I shorted California mortgage companies & homebuilders), no American company can make a decent car (I bought a lot of Ford @ $2), etc. Recently, I've had time to write letters to the editor, blog, garden & hike the Colorado Rockies.
Former long-time business editor of major US women's magazine and contributing editor at dozens of different "trade" and consumer publications. Author of over 3,000 print magazine articles in past 30 years.
Penn Ph.D., centrist Republican.
