No, that isn't me.

However, this fine picture of Garrison Keillor, borrowed from the "Prairie Home Companion" website, is by far the closest representation of myself that I could find.

He is much more handsome than I am, but we do have certain attributes in common:

We both wear glasses.

We both prefer not to wear neckties.

We both like it cold.

We both can tolerate lutefisk.

We both love lefse and roesti potatoes.

We both tend to speak softly, but carry a big stick.

We both like radio - our imaginations can be set free!

And, we both have an unusual sense of humor.

If you would like to link to the "Prairie Home Companion" website, go to my Radio Days page for a link, or click the picture.

This is my homepage. Not bad for someone with a relatively slow computer, and no knowledge of HTML, eh?

They say in Wisconsin that there are only two seasons: winter and road construction. (For those of you who have to drive in and out of Milwaukee, you know exactly what I mean.)

On the Web, I've learned that there is only one season. Web sites are always under constant construction, revision, etc.

This site will get better as I learn more - but I'm proud of it as it is now.

Do you like shortwave radio? Or, for that matter, radio in general? My Radio Days page will be of interest to you. If you are merely curious, try it anyway. 

I do have some bio info. Okay, so I'm not as interesting as David Hasslehoff. Who wants to be like him, anyway? Eventually, many of my favorite links will end up here. (Then, I'll have to change it to a bio/links page!)

If you are interested in capital punishment, you will want to visit my Capital Punishment Pages. If you, for some reason, support capital punishment, I strongly urge you to visit my Capital Punishment Pages. Within this site, I have now posted some personal commentary on the McVeigh trial fiasco, with links to two very interesting editorial cartoons on the subject (from Jim Borgman of the Cincinnati Enquirer and Steve Benson of the Arizona Republic) - take a look!

Fresh update to the McVeigh page - link here...

Also, I have done some research on capital punishment, including a survey. This material is available there, as well as a brief commentary on the life of Jeanne d'Arc, and links to other sites of interest.

In progress - My Favorite Films - a page dedicated to some critical commentaries of why you should watch films that I really like. Stay tuned.

This website was updated on 16 August 1997.
Check each of my pages for updates - individually dated.

All pages on my website are designed, as much as possible, to work well with both Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. If these pages look better in Netscape, no wonder - I used Netscape Navigator Gold 3.01 to build them... 
Technical Note: My page link buttons (gif images) do not seem to load in all of my pages when using MS Internet Explorer 3.0 for Windows 3.x, generating load errors, even though there are identical image calls in all pages. This does not seem to apply to the Windows 95 version of Explorer, although the buttons do appear oddly placed when retrieved by IE. They do work OK in Netscape. If anyone can explain why this is so, and can advise me on how to fix, let me know...
(Nota bene to the folks at Netscape and Microsoft: If you can't play together, we, the denizens of the Web, shall have to send you both to bed, without any supper. PLUS, we will downgrade your computers - to 8086's!)

There are some .gif and .jpeg images on this site. I have tried to keep them as small as possible, to minimize download time as much as possible. I prefer relatively simple web pages - this site will never win the award for glitz. I am beginning to learn that graphics, judiciously applied, are worth a thousand bytes... 
There are no images or concepts that could be considered obscene (unless you consider a discussion of the subject of capital punishment obscene). My Capital Punishment Pages would receive a "PG" rating (for adult subject matter). 
If I place pages concerning the subject of abortion, they will probably rate no worse than a "PG" (for adult subject matter). 
(Of course, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, F. James Senselessbrainer, Scot Glug, Marcus Neumann, Scott Fitzgerald, and every Republican, Muslim, and Ku Klux Klan member would want me to be burned at the stake for my positions on capital punishment and abortion.) (If you are a Republican who finds the antics of the so-called "Christian" Coalition to be sickening, this caveat was not meant for you.) 
All my other pages would be rated "G".
