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.

"One of my best friends is Jewish"

The Lincoln Journal Star dispels the strange idea some people have acquired that Chuck Hagel is anti-Israel or even anti-Semitic, by citing one Omaha rabbi who likes him.

"I reject your reality and replace it with my own anecdote"

In any case, if the dispute is to be settled by counting Nebraska Jews for and against, the Algemeiner seems to have pwned the LJS.
