With some exceptions, Bama, most of my life has been spent doing my best to stay out of the papers, and avoiding getting my picture taken, unless it was a cast picture in a production of some sort, in costume and makeup.  During the interminable LBJ, Nixon, Reagan, and Bush-Cheney and present day disasters, I worked very hard to be discreet.  But I was of journalistic bent, and also gave spontaneous anonymous speeches at events that were well infiltrated by authorities not of my persuasion.  During Vietnam, I wrote for a short time for the Los Angeles Free Press, run by Art Kunkin who took inflammatory liberties with my language while leaving my name at the top of the story.  I left him behind without much regret.  (Actually, none at all.

Years before that, I had been approached by a professor at a community college in southern California, seeking my attendance in one of his courses.  He had seen me in a local bar, expounding on the social conditions that had evolved during the cold war, with special emphasis on the last address to the Nation by Ike, warning of the dangers of an out of control military-industrial complex, and what it could lead to, while wagering on fast chess games for drinks and dollars, with young budding intellects from that institution of higher learning.  Other heroes I favored were Edward R. Murrow, and Mort Sahl, who had been pretty vigorously against the Korean War, and not to shy about his perspective.

I was flattered by the professors attention, unlettered bumpkin that I was.  I said I would register for the course, but that I had never completed my lower education, having escaped my original household at the ages of 12, 13, 14, and 16, whereupon a court in Pennsylvania just emancipated me.  Better late than never.  This had been quite disruptive to my public schooling.  Would I not have to take some tests, and so on?  He said not necessary.  Just audit the class without registering.  Work out better for my classmates, since I won't shift the grade curve.  I was silent about not knowing what a grade curve was.

Ostensibly, he was teaching a philosophy course, whose title I no longer remember.  But it had to do with thinking, and persuasion and propaganda and advertising.  It was quite an eye opener for me.  That professor was quite a pivotal person in my life.  I am glad to have known him. 

But I have a train trip of about 2600 miles, two days from now, and tomorrow an oral surgeon will be removing several broken and loose teeth, right before I leave.  It promises to be an interesting trip of a couple weeks duration, during which I will be toothless.  The purpose is to bond with one of my teen grandsons who is a bit troubled by autism coupled with a certain flair for the arts and music.  When I get back, I hope to get some dentures matching my ideas and specifications, virtually immediately.  That should be quite interesting.

I am, after all, an idea man.

I have no idea what you're about to do, but somehow I have a feeling I'll read about it in the paper. Good luck, Anthro.

(I'm still cracking up over the swiped New Yorker.)

I'm sorry that I don't have any idea. The only advice I can give is to see a dermatologist- GPs typically don't know anything about skin.

Welcome to the forum, though! I wish I had better advice.

In spite of the Reich which has now lasted now more than a thousand days, not counting the years of chaos it took a devilish demigog to consolidate his power, and link up with a so many of his his fellow monsters and murderers, not mentioning all his disposable dupes and henchmen, there are plenty of happy signs and portents to savor. 

But let us not be premature or overconfident.  Evil that does not know it is evil is incredibly hard to eradicate.  I am going to be very, very busy for several weeks.  But first I am going to smell the flowers and recreate in as many ways as I can think of.  And, afterwards, with luck,  I'll come back and tell you about it.
