I provide insights you likely won’t see elsewhere involving the intersection of history, politics, and culture from a center-right perspective. My experience draws from 40 years of work as a journalist (a daily newspaper editor and state capitol news correspondent); 35 congressional campaigns in 25 states over 25 years; a decade of federal government experience, including as the 28th Secretary of the US Senate; and 22 years as a lobbyist and spokesman in the food industry. I occasionally meander into food issues, especially on labeling and regulation. Our food safety and regulation system is a mess, even though it mostly works. OK, that adds up to more than 40 years, but not really, thanks to some overlap.
