Dateline: John Lake
John Lake was known for years in blogging circles as “BigBadJohnny”. The fearless crusader took on any and all comers; no politician or any corporate conglomerate was immune to his sword. Now at BlogCritics, he has expanded his writing efforts to include a wide range of topics – science, breaking news, humor, and still, the liberal blog. Most find him a joy, and pleasure, and a relief from the hum-drum of daily life. John was born in Chicago, has worked in Theater, Movies, Radio, and now internet tirades. His education began at the University of Illinois, and continues to this day.
