Featured Rightgrrl
  Amy NAME: Amy Welborn

AGE: 38

POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent/Libertarian

HOBBIES: Reading, music, running, film, dancing, my kids

POLITICAL PET PEEVE: Mindless automatons defending air-headed positions with empty arguments


FAVORITE MOVIE: Right now...Big Night (I'm hungry)

BOOKS YOU RECOMMEND: All the works- fiction, letters, essays by the sainted Flannery O'Connor - an orthodox Catholic hardscrabble Georgia "Rightgrrl" if there ever was one

FAVORITE MUSIC: Alternative country (Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, etc),Hardcore country, blues, rockabilly, swing..late Beethoven quartets and Renaissance music, too.

YOUR ASPIRATIONS: To raise my children to be good, decent loving human beings. To walk on the beach and see people reading novels I wrote.

YOUR TAKE ON ABORTION: Absolutely wrong in all circumstances. I don't want my liberation won by the blood of unborn children, do you?

YOUR TAKE ON CONSERVATISM: Fine and good when it speaks to the truth; like anything else, found wanting when it becomes self-serving and unthinkingly knee-jerk, which, of course, doesn't happen often....

ROLE MODELS & HEROS: A real stream of consciousness jumble here: St. Augustine, St. Theresa of Avila, Flannery O'Connor (haven't we seen her before?), Camille Paglia (honesty, folks...she's brutally honest, fearless, and willing to take on any interest group in the name of the truth), all pro-life activists and women who choose life.
