Philosophy Forums was hacked on September 6th. Due to the hacker, everything between July 24th and September 6th is permanently missing. Unfortunately, automated backups had to be turned off months ago because they were crashing the server. We're evaluating how to stop this from happening again. You may be able to find your own posts in a google cache to re-post them, if you want to.

Biographical Information

Location: Minneapolis

Gender: male

Birthdate: November 1, 1946 (67 years old)

Biography: Bear type older gay guy still interested in love, but maybe not so immediate as before. The fires of the heart cool as we head towards the October, November or December of our lives.

I am no longer working and I am much happier than I have been in years. I miss very little of the non-profit sector I labored in for 40 years, and I miss the few for-profit temp jobs I had not at all. Now I can be the highly influential, much-sought-after intellectual I always wanted to be -- provided I think of a highly influential much-sought-after idea. Ah well, one of the tasks of old age (which I am entering) is recognizing that some things one wanted are not going to happen and other things one didn't want are.

On many days I feel like a young man (other days, not so much) and on most days I prefer to think of myself as at least a fairly radical person.

  • BitterCrank [Sep 13, 2014 - 4:55 PM]: No one has bitten on "politics of another virus" in Social Science. Maybe most people don't know how vicious the politics of AIDS were? Hey, keep your sweaty paw off me! Don't even breathe near me, killer!

  • BitterCrank [Sep 13, 2014 - 8:38 AM]: Scotland the brave? Scotland the stupid? What say you about their independence vote?
