L.G. Burnett, former reviewer, is a fifth-generation native Washingtonian (D.C.) whose interests are many and varied: computer geek, amateur gerontologist, science fiction and space opera fan, blues enthusiast, parent, medical liaison, old-time radio buff, and American League Baseball (Yes, I'm for the designated hitter) devotee.

An undocumented (and unlikely) family connection to Howlin' Wolf (ne Chester Arthur Burnett) was the launching point for a lifelong interest in the blues that has grown to include many artists, both living and dead.
