"My best friend, greatest support system, and incredible grandfather has posted his entire award winning one man show on YouTube for the world to see for free. He had an offer to bring the show to NY but instead decided he just wanted to spread joy for all to be able to see (and laugh, and cry etc). That speaks more about his character than anything I could write here. In summary: do yourself a favor and watch this.".

[on his pierced left ear] What the hell? I think, you know, if a pirate can wear an earring, why can't I wear an earring? Why should we be the only male of a species that isn't into adornment? [The Tonight Show, Feb. 5, 1976]
The trap is man's armored character structure and there's only one way out of it. It's not drugs and it's not religion and it's not politics. It's going back to the old apple tree and trying to do better than Adam and Eve did.
