I was born on an Air Force Base in Champagne County Illinois
My mother described me as a sensitive kid who empathized with people's feelings early in life.
My Dad fed me with an endless supply on non-fiction books throughout childhood.
I was a bookworm, but I never backed away from a fight when the bullies came around.I would try to reason with them first, but occasionally they needed a blow to their pride with this little skinny guy being a utensil for some cosmic justice they had coming. I still fight bullies, those that come in the form of unethical corporate practices or government encroaching in on our personal lives and our liberty and our property.
