I've always been pretty clear regarding my intentions, My story doesn't change and I don't mask how I feel. I've been all over the world, I'm well read and my opinions are well thought out and properly researched, often even 'peer reviewed'. I don't mind broaching even the touchiest subjects with measured debate, I'll make a convincing case however you should come prepared. I ran short on patience a while ago, thus the screen name.
I was brought up in very meager surroundings in the swamps of South Florida. Raised poor, but rich in experiences and good intentions from an early age. I learned to be respectful but resolute and to always look after women, animals and young children. I open doors for people and use "please", "thank you", "sir" and "ma'am" with sickening frequency.
When I escaped from the swamp, not nearly an adult, I never looked back. To this day I'm still better at looking forward than reminiscing. I traveled pretty extensively on other people's dime for nearly two decades, in that time I've lived low and I've lived well and finally decided to set down a few roots.
This is what led me to Durham, for no other reason than this seems to be the kind of place where people do that sort of thing. Only time will tell how deep those roots anchor me to North Cackalacky. If any of this offends your delicate sensibilities, please feel free to move on. Otherwise I've been known to be rather fun to be around.
Anyway, you can find me:

Do you see a theme here? If you're curious, drop a short note, what could it hurt? I suspect I'll respond if only to be polite.
