"I was born in Detroit, lived my formative years in Ohio and Minnesota, and stayed in America long enough to get in the basic rituals of high school and college. I graduated from the U of Minnesota/Twin Cities with a B.A. in International Relations. I settled permanently in Madrid in the 80s and keep my bread buttered by teaching English courses on a freelance basis in Spanish companies.  I give an hour, maybe two, of class, then pack up my briefcase and leave behind my students clinched to their computer screens; I can never be too grateful to teaching.  I usually have just one or two classes in the morning, then sit down to write between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. (the Spanish lunch hour), since at that time Spaniards are too busy raising company profits to ponder the mysteries of the verb Get. I also publish satirical verse – op-eds, really – about domestic and international politics, on my own and different progressive websites in the U.S. I used to write normal op-eds, but branched into this new form a few years ago and enjoy it much more."—Philip Kraske
