17. I graduated high school in ''67, in the Midwest, so I married, then raised kids in the early '70s
and became more active when I returned to university once the kids were big enough to go to school.
I was sensitized on the issues anyway by the '60s and by debating in highschool on an NFL topic having to do with controlling the proliferation of nuclear weapons around the world, so when I met Plow Shares in college, I was ready to go!!!
It was also a natural progression from nuclear weapons to environmental issues; though I knew of John Kennedy, I didn't become specifically political, as in identifying with a political party, until Bobby Kennedy.
I think if I'm going to be so obnoxious about a change that I want to see in the world, a BIG change that will affect EVERYTHING about everyone, present and future, I don't think it unreasonable that those whose ear I demand should know as much about me as possible.
I understand the privacy issues and don't disagree; I just don't personally care about it, for myself, except as it can affect my employment.
