I’m Jemaleddin Cole, but I go by “Jemal” for obvious reasons. I live in Baltimore, MD with my wonderful wife, spectacular son and dazzling daughter. Because my wife is an environmental economist, I think about incentives and worry about climate change. Because my son is autistic, I have a lot to say about fact-based treatment. Because my daughter is a sophomore in college, I worry that my hair is going gray faster than I can pull it out. I was born in 1974 which makes me…29 years old.
I’m an avid fan of mixed martial arts, a devoted comics reader, and frequent maker of stuffed animals for children. What? Yeah, I don’t get it either. But the upside is that it’s not unusual to see me watching a UFC event on pay-per-view in a Hulk t-shirt while making a sock monster.
In my copious spare time, I maintain a tiny network of tiny sites:
- Is Ron Paul a Racist?
- What She Really Said
- You Might Be a Racist
- Maybe Shut Up?
- Does Tenet Make Sense?
And I host and help maintain a couple Wikis for podcasts I like:
I’m easy to contact - email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get it. I’m on Twitter if you want to read smaller chunks of what I have to say, and if you want to find me on any given social network, search for jemaleddin.
