I thought it'd be interesting to find out about who I've been yelling at and for the past five years. Just an honest bit about yourself is all I ask. Me, 40, born in Chicago, raised in Wisconsin. Father, soft-conservative,mother, a bit unsettled, both sets of grandparents, staunch catholic-conservatives. We grew up in a mixed neighborhood, that is to say, some were getting by, some were living large. My father didn't manage his risks very well. We lived in various degrees of boom and bust. My fundamentalist religious beliefs are few and far between. And I distrust all people baring gifts.
