Gregor Mendel (not his real name) is a Ph.D. with a post-doc from Harvard Medical School (though he is NOT a physician). Married for 20+ years, and the father of four children, now ages 9, 12, 14, and 19. He has Multiple Sclerosis (diagnosed a few years ago) and often talks about that, even on this blog. Some of his friends–the guilty will go unnamed–encouraged him to start this blog after they saw his scathing responses to others. Other than that he is a boring guy. Oh, and he is really into politics.
