My name is Jack Hectorman and thanks for having me and I'm glad to be here.
I have been reading along at ODN for over a year and decided to join.
I am a family man, husband, father, grandfather, married young "until death do us part"
now living happily ever after with lovely wife, children, and many grandchildren. I am
a Christian Conservative Presbyterian. I have hopes for a gradually realized and very
incremental worldwide success of Christendom and Christian Conservatism as the
millenniums roll forward. (We have a very long way to go, that's for sure.)
I'd describe myself as a determined optimist, herald of faith, hope, tough love, political
conflict, carnivorous anti-vegetarianism .. lol .. and conspicuous consumerism [it creates
jobs, plus its joyous to overflow your shopping cart, same day, at Sam's Club and
Walmart .. lol ..
I am rather addicted to life, mind-stimulating movies, exhilarating music,
interest-gripping books, classical music, unending political conflict, and five-dollar
Starbucks caramel lattes with extra-syrup, piled-high with whipped cream, caramel
drizzle, and sprinkled cinnamon on top ;-) Greatly enjoy the music of Andrea Bocelli,
Sarah Brightman, Andre' Rieu, Anna Netrebko, Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, and
anything David Foster produces, eg, Andrea Bocelli concerts. `
I like this quote:
"Only the dead have seen an end to war, and politics is war by another name."
I enjoy reading, William Lane Craig is interesting. Next book I plan to read is
"Housekeeping" by Marilynne Robinson and I just ordered her "The Death of
Adam: Essays on Modern Thought."
Thanks again for the opportunity to be a member here at ODN.
