Comments:

I served in the Peace Corps in Afghanistan right after college; went to San Francisco to help start a "counter culture" magazine called SunDance; raised three wonderful children while doing some freelance journalism and photography.

In early 2001 I went to Gaza and the West Bank as a freelance reporter; founded a nonprofit called If Americans Knew to tell people about Israel-Palestine; wrote a book called "Against Our Better Judgment;" continue to visit the region occasionally, and frequently give lectures and write articles on the issue – recently returned from Beirut. (Because of my work on Palestine, Israel partisans periodically defame me online as supposedly a "communist" or "right-wing" or "anti-Semitic," etc... fyi none are true).

I have six small grandchildren whom I'm delighted to regularly babysit, with another on the way; continue to live in the San Francisco area; occasionally go on speaking tours to other parts of the US (I spoke in Middlebury a few years ago) and would enjoy having coffee with former classmates anytime we're in the same area!
