Michael Jones lost it at the movies after seeing 'The Third Man' at a theater in Vienna. Later, he produced a movie review show with Roger Ebert for a Chicago radio station. Still later, he ran a soccer team, worked at a rock and roll radio station, and became a father. He has been writing about public policy, movies, books, and Horst Cabal for years. He was honored by the Sea Park Surf Association for his nose riding skills, ran with the bulls in Pamplona three separate times, won the Badminton Invitational Golf Tournament once, and was a cabinet member under two Governors of different parties. He's curious about all things, skeptical about most things, and has noticed, to his chagrin, that if you are not a curmudgeon by forty-five, you haven't been paying attention.
