Not too long from now I will be 73 years old, which means I predate Democracy (perhaps I still do, but questions remain). There is an old
scar from sternum to navel incurred during a high school P.E.unit on machete juggling. My neck? there is a scar halfway around from my vague insult to the king --legally considered only half an insult punishable half a beheading.
I guess my job now is using geriatric tissue to hold these scars together.
