I am an independent thinking progressive liberal living in New York City/The Big Apple/Gotham City/Fun City. I am interested in politics, sports (Crystal Palace FC, Boston Red Sox, NY Red Bulls, NY Cosmos, US National Soccer Teams), music and life. I spent over ten years on active duty in the US Army, first in the Field Artillery and then Military Intelligence, specializing in counter-terrorism back in the days it was called “counter-what”? I have been divorced since 16 May 2016 from Ruth Ann Cunningham. We have a daughter born on 16 August 2003, Erin Jocelyn Barr.
