I was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on September 1, 1936, in a little tiny house on a very steep hill. It was a nasty winter, and the doctor never made it back to that little tiny house on the very steep hill to circumcise me, thereby saving me from this entirely unnecessary mutilation. As a consequence, I have enjoyed a very happy sex life for the past fifty years.
I also enjoy billiards, public speaking, vegan cooking, writing, and saving nonhuman animals.
See my chapter in the book In Defense of Animals by Peter Singer.
I spend a lot of time supporting the Texas Snow Monkey Sanctuary near Dilley, Texas. I sometimes arrange for homeless monkeys (snow monkeys, vervets, baboons) to come there to be released in large (fiveto sixty-five acre) outdoor enclosures, so that they can interact meaningfully with their fellow species. I arrange for free fruit and vegetables from San Antonio produce outlets; I also rebuild trailers and pens, rescue rattlesnakes, help clean and feed, and so on. In the process, I interact with zoos, other sanctuaries, and those involved in sanctuary accreditation.
