About Us

Welcome to the Brookston family blog. We'll post updates here on what's going on in our part of the world, and especially with our son, Porter, who has been diagnosed with some form of autism. Our hope is that this blog will help us deal with all the issues we'll be facing and keep our friends and family informed as well.

About Me

Except for a short stint as a baby up in the Seattle area, I’m a life-long resident of the SF Bay Area. Notwithstanding my childhood dreams of growing up to be a cowgirl, vetrinarian, or dolphin trainer, I’m currently serving out a lifetime sentence as a corporate lawyer.

You’re going to the moon! What did you forget to pack?

Nothing. I’m physically incapable of leaving for a trip without packing twice as much stuff as I could conceivably need.

  1. I found your blog on google looking for something Howard Zinn might have said about Alice Paul. You will be interested in knowing that he totally ignores her in his Peoples History of the US. Zinn, who celebrates American radicals in history, gives all the pap about Susan B. Anthony and those gals and never tells us the real radical story of how Alice Paul got us the vote.
    Check out the video Iron Jawed Angels — her story–on Lifetime TV this Sunday March 5th.
