I've spent half a century (yikes) as an ink-stained wretch writing for radio and print - mostly print. I hope to be still tapping the keys as I take my last breath.

I'm curious about everything with the exception of rap "music," mathematics, "reality" TV, and any movies with Leonardo DiCaprio in them. So that proves I'm not curious about everything.

I am a world-class practitioner of old fartism, mourning the disappearance of actors who can enunciate, songs you can hum or whistle, steam locomotives, and prison cells for crooked bankers. I could add much to this list but it would be very boring.

I've served my three score and ten sentence, if not with distinction, at least without causing too much trouble.

I relate completely to the statement of H.L. Menken's that "Self-confidence is the feeling that no one is, as yet, suspicious."
