    Straight white guy in my early 50's (but I live in Mass, so there's that).

    Got involved in politics when I started working for the Humphrey campaign (after his nomination) selling buttons and bumper stickers outside of the 86th St. subway station in NYC.

    I was 9 years old (literally, as Joe Biden would say), but I remember how angry my mom got watching Nixon on the news, and thus my life as a political activist began.

    Can't believe the folks at the Humphrey office trusted me to work for them, but they did.  Thank goodness.  I've been involved ever since.

    Until the economy recovers, I'll settle for cheap laughs
