I'm a lawyer, writer and political activist living in Mount Pleasant, SC. I've written a weekly newspaper column for the Moultrie News called Porches to Sidewalks for ever ten years, which sometimes includes travel pieces. I have a 19 year old son and am married to my wife of 25 years Julia. Paris is wonderful. Italy is life conducted as if food, sex and color matter. Costa Rica is civilized. Vancouver BC is the most decent city in North America. New York matters. Trains are better, highspeed, fast, slow or scenic are all OK>
