I am an at-home dad, retired from two successful careers, first as an engineer and then as a lawyer. Being retired, I am no longer a participant in the rat race, hence the title of this blog and my nom de blog
, ExRat. My purpose here is to provide an outlet for my comments, rants, attempts at humor, and whatever else I damn well please. I expect this will be a boon to my dear wife, who has patiently (mostly) listened to whatever I have to say for many years. I hope it will also be entertaining and thought-provoking to visitors.
This is my first endeavor at writing for recreation. I will not be anywhere near as prolific as Glenn Reynolds
, nor as passionate as Charles Johnson
, nor as analytical as Steven Den Beste
, nor as good a writer as Lileks
(could anybody be all of those things?) but with practice I hope to get better in all of those areas.
Let's see where this thing takes us!
