Until recently, when I retired from Abt Associates, I worked on benefit-cost analyses for various EPA offices, including its Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards and the National Center for Environmental Economics. I became politicized during the 2004 presidential election and have been a political junkie ever since.  I write essays — on whatever strikes my fancy — to help clarify my thoughts and, sometimes, just to get them down on paper. I share my empty nest (two kids grown and gone) in Silver Spring, MD, just outside of Washington, D.C. with my husband, Barry Galef.
