To those without a sense of humor

For anybody who wants to know the identity of Spikes McGuire, Henry, Pete, Ian, Joe Adelphio, Dennis, Richard, Blackjack Davey, Aretha Dylan, Bo Diddley, Woody Holiday and Porgie Tirebiter, the poster is a guy named William Phalon. He was born in 1964 in New Jersey, USA, to a large Irish Catholic family, soon after which he moved to Boston, Massachussetts. In 1970 his nephrologist father died, leaving his mother and siblings destitute. So, on September 12,1972, they moved to Arizona, where Bill lived with his fightin' Irish siblings until he went to college and, later, graduate school.

Bill went to college with the help of the social security which he was awarded to him and his siblings on account of the death of his father. Thanks to Ronald Reagan, this option is no longer available to children whose parents have died. In 1982, the program was mandated to be phased out by 1986. Bill was supposed to graduate high school class of 1982, but, to maintain the the social security checks, he took his diploma in December 1981 and went to community college beginning spring semester 1982. He got miserable grades.

He then went to a four-year insitution after which he went to graduate school, getting an M.A. in linguistics.

Beginning in 1993, Bill took advantage of the special place which the decadent capitalist system creates for those lucky ones who who choose to obey the system. Bill has been working as a paid parasite, a petit-bourgeois college professor in Kofu, Japan, about 150 kilometers west of Tokyo, and has been fortunate enough to get some part-time work in tv as well as modeling.

At this time, Bill would like to keep to himself his dietary habits, his sexual preferences as well as his marital status. But, for comrades, he'll answer any e-mail queries concerning job opportunities in Japan.

I hope my politics are evident to everyone here. I don't like what I see going on and I work to change it. I could give you of resume of the activities/demonstrations in which I've been involved, but to do so would be an insult to the intelligence of most of you. I'm on your side, I think, or else I wouldn't post so much.

I've been under the weather the last three days, thus I've had a lot of time to sit in front of this keyboard. People say that the personal is political. Well that's the personal, and I don't think it changes a damn thing.

Is that enough knowledge about the posters?
