While realizing a
successful career in music over the last
thirty years, Larry has always had a strong
interest in politics. As a twelve year
old, he was given a special award for a
speech he gave promoting American values at
the American Legion National Conference in
During high school,
Larry helped organize Youth For Goldwater,
and as a reward, was brought to the home of
future Governor and President Ronald Reagan,
who personally thanked him for his efforts.
At U.C.L.A., Larry
was a Political Science major, and helped
organize the U.C.L.A. Young Republicans.
After working on
various Republican campaigns over the years,
Larry felt the party had disenfranchised
many of its Conservative supporters, and he
became an independent.
His popular column
is now widely viewed and is reprinted in
several other countries, with almost 120,000
readers. He started posting over a year ago, when his
Liberal buddy Barry Gordon suggested his
thoughts, though wrong, were interesting
enough for him to start a post.
To Barry's chagrin,
Larry At Large is doing very well.
