I'd like to personally and publicly thank my friend Grouchogandhi for creating the new Square and Compasses with Lady Liberty's Torch graphic for the bannerhead of The Burning Taper yesterday. I think he's incredibly talented with conceptual visualization and a whiz at PhotoShop. I'm proud to have known him since the Reagan years.
He has a remarkably twisted sense of wit and humor, and an amazing depth of knowledge on the most obscure and bizarre things, including state, national and international politics, and he knows enough about techno-whizbangs to be dangerous. He constantly keeps me on my toes cerebrally, challenging me at every twist and turn.
Regarding my recent endorsement of Ron Paul's candidacy, the first thing he said to me was, "So what's up with them tying his campaign to the Hindenburg?"
In July, 2006 I wrote here about his 30 inches of Dick in the article "Who has the biggest Dick?" That page is still one of the most read stories on the Taper, getting dozens of hits each day. A challenger stepped up and topped him at 46 inches, but such are the ups and downs of life. Recently someone claimed 70 inches, but he was later discovered to have padded his Dick with non-Dick material.
Of my being a Mason and publishing the Taper, he says, "One day they'll hang you from a bridge."
So raise up in toast
Your glass of Maker's Mark,
Go rightly to his sites
And view his scanner dark.
