“Zippy” is me. “Zippy Catholic” is the blog.
I’m just some clown who happens to be Roman Catholic. “Zippy” started as a throwaway nickname that is mostly Mark Shea‘s fault; but now I’m stuck with it, and the name and I have grown attached over the years. “Catholic” because when I went to start a blog “Zippy” by itself wasn’t available, and because I aspire to be Catholic in my thinking and practice. It most certainly doesn’t imply that I am a particularly good Catholic or speak for the Church. All ideas and opinions (other than direct quotations) are my own, and if you accept the thoughts and assertions of an Internet clown named Zippy without doing your own due diligence you are probably even sillier than an Internet clown named Zippy.
In the past I’ve also blogged at What’s Wrong With the World. I’ve commented (particularly in its early days) at the blog View from the Right under the name “Matt”; other than that its generally been all Zippy, all the time, at least since the 2000’s, though I may have taken an anonymous potshot here or there over the years. I’ve used the Internet since the eighties and sometimes it is hard to remember my own age let alone all the other details of life.
