The Shaved Ape is a blog about current events, politics, and anything else I wish to include.
I'm Don Long, and I live in Southern California. I'm a practical libertarian, as opposed to a Libertarian. A practical libertarian sees some value in taxes and government regulation, and doesn't want schools, police, and fire to be privatized. I lean right, but not too far, considering I'm atheist and don't particularly mind abortions in the first and second trimesters.
Shaved apes are humans. The blog title acknowledges my humanity, which means I'm capable of both good and bad posts. I started the blog mostly to vent my anger and doodle with Photoshop. It has grown (slightly) to something more substantial, but the angry, almost irrational rants still pop up from time to time.
A lot of what I do is pure sarcasm. For instance, I don't actually want these life forms made extinct.
