Timothy Sayre Fowler recently spent several years abroad. He now lives in southwest Virginia in the USA with his Finnish wife and children, who were made in America with Finnish parts. He is working in Finland this year while his family remains back home. When he is not teaching English, he enjoys reading novels and non-fiction history, and writing his head off. He also is an avid web surfer and movie fan. Trained as a journalist, he comments here on the news he thinks is important, or he makes his own. For him, everything else in the news makes it a slow news day.
