Cecil is a nearly 40-year-old deconverted Christian, Ex- Republican, one-time Woo-believer and former conspiracy theorist. He’s all better now. He lives with his wife in Chicago. He has two associates’ degrees in culinary and patisserie arts, a BA degree in philosophy, and a Masters in New Media. He makes a living as a new media professional. None of these things qualify him as an authority on anything. He can however, prepare a meal that will make you have a fit of existential anxiety then he’ll give you advice on the best way to tweet about it. He’s never ridden in a submarine.
Tom is a great lover of sandwiches and the meats and cheeses within them. He has a degree in English Literature, which, along with three bucks and a kind word, might be enough for a cup of coffee. A father, husband, half-hearted idealist, and sometimes poet, Tom’s ire is raised before he is every morning. Tom earns his keep staring numbly downward while listening to people complain about real estate. He is also afraid of birds.
