In a rant/revel this week a commenter asks what did you go to study in school and what do you do now? I thought this would be a fun summer FQotD – So I’ll kick it off – I studied Political Science and International Affairs and before settling in as a blogger I was a paralegal, defense/air force consultant, reporter for a Japanese newspaper (Asahi Shimbun), a Congressional liaison for a small think tank, and a homeland security consultant. Crazy writing all that down. So what did you study and what path did you take to your current job?
