Biography

Dr. Lang spent two decades in Iowa, one in Missouri, and now two in North Dakota.  His partner is a photographer.  They have amassed three daughters and two sons.

Dr. Lang is a practicing Greek Cynic in the tradition of Hipparchia and Bion.

Cynic, def.
A person who reasons that social norms (li) are typically worthless. To live objectively healthy and moral lives, such Cynics turn to training regimes of frugality, shamelessness, and autonomy. Often, they enact antinomian performance art as a creative outlet.
