Eric started out writing about cars for mainstream media outlets such as The Washington Times, Detroit News and Free Press, Investors Business Daily, The American Spectator, National Review, The Chicago Tribune and Wall Street Journal.
At some point, it occurred to him that cars – and of course, motorcycles – represent freedom, but that the freedom to drive (and freedom to drive what you wanted to drive) was being systematically undermined by authoritarian control freaks dressed in red and blue. His former conservatism evolved into Libertarianism, this oddball idea that live – and let live – ought to be the basis for human interactions.
His books include Road Hogs (2011) and Automotive Atrocities (2004). His latest book, Don’t Get Taken for a Ride, was published in 2017. You can get a copy of it here, for your favorite price.
Eric lives in the boonies of rural Southwest Virginia with various animals and won’t get near an airport until the TSA’s Submission Training goes away.
