Cindy has tagged me to reveal six interesting things about myself.

1) I left high school after my junior year and headed off the college, where I graduated summa cum laude in three years with a BA, major: History with minors: French and German. I wanted to be an international business woman (ie, executive assistant).
2) I married at age 22 after *dating* my husband for over four years. We met in college, so we have known one another over 31 years! We have four daughters aged 21, 19, 18, and 16.
3) I was born and reared in Atlanta along with my five siblings, who are now scattered, but we have given our folks 29 grands. We gather for a family reunion at Callaway Gardens each July.
4) In addition to serving my husband at home, I have for ten years now assisted him by managing his private family practice. We have a passion for keeping medicine free from governmental control and independent of insurance companies.
5) I enjoy lots of things: reading, cooking, organizing, most things Southern, politics, theology, and economics.
6) I had the privilege of knowing and working for Congressman Larry McDonald who was killed along with 168 others by the Soviets in 1983.


  1. Dana, do you still read New American? One of my readers sent me a gift subscription, and we are enjoying it a great deal. I'm still not sure how I feel about the JBS (some of its adherents come across a bit like Amway salespeople), but they do seem to be very principled in a good way. Did you see the latest brouhaha within the Constitution Party regarding allowing state chairs who are for abortion in the "hard" cases?

    The family reunions sound like fun. That's my dream!

  2. No, I dont read the New American on a regular basis anymore. I learned quite a bit by being a Bircher, but am no longer actively affiliated. Gee, no, I didnt know about the recent Constitution Party machinations either, but I know well of John Lofton.
    About the family reunions, they started about twenty years ago at my parents home, but when the numbers got too large, they *transferred out.* Check out the beginnings of our family webpage
