Brain Slug is a wilderness hiker and backpacker who resides in Seattle, Washington with his heterosexual life partner and Daisy the wonder dog. He is the manager of a small business, and a freelance writer for The Progressive Press. He has been collecting and collating data about politics and the world in general for the last 45 years, and now he is ready to print out his conclusions. So take off your tinfoil hat, attach the Brain Slug to your cranium, and prepare to laugh until you cry. Though Brain Slug often uses humor to make his points, everything he posts is held to the rigorous standards of logic, fairness and fact checking, and is grounded in bedrock progressive principles.
