RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

Puppet on a string

Like a marionette jerked by Paul Johnson, Bob Kerrey's campaign manager, the Lincoln Journal Star today editorialized about grazing fees, a topic it has ignored for the entire history of the fish wrap. According to the LJS
Kerrey and Nelson are right to pull the grazing fee issue into the public eye.
..ignoring that Kerrey voted against a grazing fee hike while he was in the Senate, and ben Nelson has completely ignored the issue until it became a cudgel with which to bash GOP Senate candidate Deb Fischer. As I've noted before, the LJS no longer even tries to keep up the appearance of being nonpartisan.
