Plain Sense


"To all the friends and strangers and even enemies who answered the Great Roll Call when I was seized by rabid scum who tried to put me in prison." -Hunter S. Thompson “He that goes to law holds a wolf by the ears." -Robert Burton, Anatomy of Melancholy

Plain Sense is a currently unencumbered attorney residing in Minneapolis, MN.  I also have a general interest blog The Great Roll Call Roadtrip formerly The Great Roll Call 

Interests Blues, motorcycles, dogs, social and economic justice and friends. It all started listening to a 50, 000 watt radio station broadcasting from the upper midwest to a canary yellow 1968 Chrysler Newport parked in the foothills of the Sandia Mts near Tejaras Canyon, N.M. We were listening to the radio play by play of MN Northstars Hockey Games "... J.P. Parise, Danny O'Shea, Cesare Maniago, etc...." and enjoying looking at stars in the crisp black night sky of my first New Mexican winter. -Plain Sense
