About the author

Bob Owens has been on the blogging scene, running the politics-focused Confederate Yankee, since November of 2004. He also maintains two other blogs (this is one of them) and writes for online news outlets.

Bob works as a web developer and writer at a top-of-the-line Fortune 1000 computer company, and drinks good beer on the job.

In the past, he’s worked as the ATV-jockeying surveyor for a utilities contractor, been an honest used-car salesman, and worked as a comically under-skilled construction hand.

Somewhere in there, he completed two college degrees and married the girl of his dreams. They’ve spawned twice, and have an almost normal family life.
