  I am delighted to have conversed with a number of compelling and controversial public figures.  Having the chance to visit with a number of contemporary leaders and quixotic newsmakers has helped me to better understand the nuances involved in many critical issues that confront our dynamic culture and quickly changing nation.  While I do not always agree with the political views of the people I meet, I have benefitted from the democratic dialogue that has ensued from these encounters.  In addition, there are special locations in our diverse world that I have especially enjoyed.  Below are photos taken from my albums representing the many people and places that I have encountered.  (Please note: All photographs are copyrighted and I retain all rights to the reproduction of these photographs in any form).
