A short summary
of a long career
I don’t have a degree in wrongheaded economics and I don’t have a masters in business administration. These are my credentials:
As a boy and very young man I mowed grass for a dozen neighbors, became a hayfield farm hand, sold shoes in a shoe store, worked on a roof crew for the school board, dug ditch and drove truck to deliver water to active gas wells being drilled by the local gas company.
This was the beginning of my eclectic career of many titles: student, soldier, professor, reporter, editorial writer, newspaper editor-publisher, restaurateur, politician, state senator, lobbyist, healthcare association and organ procurement organization executive, business consultant, author, fighter for the rights of working men, women and children, and do-it-yourselfer.
I’ve worked inside and outside “the establishment” and for businesses large and small. The thread running through all of it has been advocacy.
