Rip McMurphy

Senior Writer/Editor

I run it and write it at the Morning Nightcap. Long walks. Beaches. Booze. Food for thought. Yeah, I like all that. It’s what you bring in and what you leave behind…



Steve P.

Senior Writer

I put words on pages and screens. I more or less live in Endor- or at least, I’m surrounded by redwood trees all day. I prefer 21 year old Balvenie, but I’ll accept an IPA if you’re offering. I make right wingers and establishment democrats angry for fun and profit.


Senior Writer

I teach college students about the virtues of the Luddites while working at a software development company. I rely on name calling and hyperbole because facts are for schmucks.
