About me

I chose my username because I am a Utah fan, and I lived in Washington, D.C. when I registered for Wikipedia.

Now I have graduated from law school and am back in Salt Lake City, but I kept my original username.

I am active in WikiProject College football. I also enjoy welcoming newcomers as well as reverting vandalism, which I find therapeutic.

I love barnstars. I have four so far, but always appreciate more. So if I've done something you think is worthy of recognition, show some WikiLove and award me one on my talk page, okay?

Picture of the day

I endorse more pictures and visual media on Wikipedia. To that end, I put the picture of the day on my profile page to raise awareness of the power of visual media.

Quaker guns

Quaker guns in former Confederate fortifications at Manassas Junction, Virginia, in March 1862. Quaker guns were widely used as a deception tactic in warfare during the 18th and 19th centuries. Although resembling an actual cannon, the Quaker gun was simply a wooden log, usually painted black. The name derives from the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, who have traditionally held a religious opposition to war and violence in the Peace Testimony.
