Daniel Burnett is a press secretary and a journalism graduate from the University of Georgia. He lives in Washington, D.C., and writes columns on issues of culture, history, politics and education that have appeared in newspapers nationwide. He believes in America, Billy Joel, the Oxford comma and irony. A photo of Daniel and his friend Courtney Michaluk was used to illustrate Pat Buchanan's idea of "a society that has lost its moral bearings and is rapidly losing its mind." Stay classy, Pat.
