Bio

“Well, I’ve been knocked down, blown up, lied to, shit on, and shot at, so nothing suprises me much anymore except the things people do to each other. I’m not a virgin except in my heart. I’m a licensed pilot, everything from Jennies through jets. I’ve taught karate in Tokyo and lectured on economics at Wharton. I can memorize the front page of The New York Times in five minutes and repeat it back to you in five weeks. I can follow anyone anywhere from in front or behind. I can go forty-eight hours without sleep or a drop in efficiency. I can bench-press four hundred and fifty pounds ten times without a break and was national Golden Gloves champion three years in a row. I speak four languages fluently and can wrestle with a menu in five more.”
     “Jesus–” from Cyrus Kinick.
     “–and don’t interrupt me, I wasn’t done, there’s more!”
     “More?”
     “Yeah. I lie a lot.”
