Tom Sandborn was born in Alaska and raised in the wilderness by wolves. Later, Jesuits at the University of San Francisco and radical feminists in Vancouver generously gave time and energy to the difficult task of educating and humanizing him. Tom has a formal education, too: a BA from the University of British Columbia. He has been practicing the dark arts of journalism off and on ever since university, and now also has about five decades of social justice, peace and environmental campaigning under his belt.
Tom’s goal is to live up to the classic definition of a journalist’s job from H. L. Menken: to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.
