Nobody's sure what ATEP is.
It's all very mysterious, really. --This "Dissent" thing, I mean.
B. von Traven/Chunk Wheeler/Roy Bauer
Philosopher & creative sort. Raised—until the age of 5—by a family of electrical wolf artists in the mountains of British Columbia. A conservative radical Eagle Scout, he owns an expensive Taylor 6-string. He used to mountain-bike every day, but he broke some ribs and now he rides a treadmill. (Trabuco Canyon/Lambrose Canyon) (For some family history, see Bauer Family Blog.)
(See The Unabauer Manifesto, OC Weekly, 4/8/99)
Rebel Girl/the Reb
Writer and radical and mother. Raised by wolves of an entirely different sort, in the sun, by the harbor, just north of here. Now, during the summer, she runs a successful writing conference in Northern California. Jacques Derrida once borrowed her snorkel. He seemed nice. He’s dead. The Reb's works can be found in some major anthologies. These days, she's editing a collection of writings associated with Orange County. (Modjeska Canyon)
Writer and union organizer (UCI) and father. Raised by wolves from a place across the ocean. He edits a well-regarded journal and, when not kayaking, writes funnily and caustically about rat bastards who, naturally, do not like him. He and his bride own a house in the mountains, but he is proud of his yurt. (Modjeska Canyon)
Oh yeah. Red has a literary interview program on KPFK.
Some of these people love to hang out in Mexico, though, lately, that's become iffy. That's where B. von Traven ended up, you know.
