Don Havis has been a life-long political activist working on various civil and human rights issues, with a special emphasis on separation of Church and State. Major life goals are to make the world a place of (1) Peace and Justice, and (2) sanity/rationality. I’m not doing at all well on either of these goals and could use a lot more help!
