I never thought he would come by the forums.  And now here he is.

And he seems to have embraced his nickname "susan" even though his wife calls him "tim".

Susan lives in a small town in idaho, and enjoys hunting and building things.  His wife, kristie, likes the house to be REALLY hot in the winter.  So susan brings goes through a lot of chainsaw fuel to bring home a lot of wood.

Susan doesn't buy organic food.  My impression is that he thinks people that are keen on organic food are just more susceptible to marketing

Susan enjoys conservative media (although from his perspective, he might think it is "middle of the road"  and the res of the media is "liberal") and is convinced that most of what is conveyed there is true.

Welcome to Susan then....

How did your brother get that nickname?
Mine is - James for obvious reasons, James and Jami being the same name.

I do not buy organic food because I believe the hype, but because I have to bide my time until I can take over complete production of my own food.  I cringe when 'buy-organic' is the best I can do. 

I'd love to boycott it until organic really means something, but I'm caught in the middle for now.  I believe modern food production will never be good enough, so buying local from like-minded folks will be my goal when supplementing our own grown food is desired.  For now all the CASAs/Farms etc. use modern farming practices (petroleum pesticides and fertilizer, and lots of plowing) so I buy organic - sigh.

I too dislike and avoid politics, while being much like Susan in my political tastes

I welcome Paul's Brother... In some ways he and I act alike and in some ways we think not alike. 

Sounds like fun to me.
