Jeanne Rousseau Khan is a retired executive (from the audit agency chasing Halliburton and their ilk) who writes on Usenet for exercise. She learns to write by writing and sees the only certain moment as the present one, hence, makes notes on news.
Lifetime member of the American Humanist Association (AHA), Jeanne married David La Plant, who did not change his name upon their joining by AHA's Tom Ferrick of Harvard in 1982, but he did construct their ERA signs because he is a wise, good fellow who shares her point of view. They have lived in California ever since her career relocated her in 1982.
Her Graduate Degree was earned at Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, in 1980. She attended colleges nights for twelve years while raising her two children alone on her ever increasing salary.
