i talked to someone on the phone a month ago who i have known on-line for over two years. the first words from her mouth were "tell me all about you!" people on both sides of this war seem to want to know about me. i don't think of myself as a particularly worthy blog subject but i'll try to make it interesting.
i am one of 79 million people born between 1946-1964.
my ancestors originate from the land of nanny dogs.
at the age of 19, i accompanied an illinois state trooper to an inquest in chicago. i received a private tour of the cook county, illinois morgue and i observed an autopsy. it was fascinating. if my brain was hard wired to excel in biology, i would have become a forensic pathologist. instead, i studied art, psychology, political philosophy, and finally criminology. i considered law school but my only interest in law would have been as a prosecutor and cutting deals with scum would have taken years off of my life.
i despise the democrats almost as much as the republicans.
i am pro capital punishment and i favor its expansion. suicide by cop works too.
besides gripping dogs, i am obsessed with the first and second amendments, neil young, To Kill a Mockingbird (i've watched it every year for the last 30), native plants, normal dogs, wolverines, corporate & political psychopaths, political correctness, our exploding human population, finite resources, carbon footprints, landfills and our wasteful, mindless consumer driven culture.
i am envious of hickok45's gun collection & knowledge and i am in awe of his shooting ability.
i want one of these, the ultimate pit bull stopper.
the shift key hates me and i do my best to avoid it.
dogs i have owned: collies, great danes, german shepherds, mutts. i have never been bitten by a dog although when i was about 22, a kuvasz came dangerously close to biting me in the face. without provocation and without warning, he snapped at me and missed me by inches. as luck would have it, i just happened to move out of his range as he went for my face.
and the answer to the question that i think is on everybody's mind: the name craven desires is from one of my favorite tv shows, the x-files and the sadistic scribblings of north carolina dog fighters CHRIS and ED FARON inspired me to name the blog craven desires.
you can read about craven eddy here.
in addition to the depravity of blood sports, craven desires also has applications in the pit nutters' pathological need for power, domination, recognition, attention, admiration.
