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.

A direct, blatant lie from the Lincoln Journal Star

Three men, armed with a shotgun, committed a home invasion robbery in the near-south area of Lincoln; they assaulted a resident with the gun. The Journal Star reported:
Davidsaver said the resident was OK and was not taken to the hospital. The men were able to provide only vague descriptions of the intruders.
Captain Davidsaver is a police spokesman. But that is not what the police said. Lincoln Crimestoppers reports.
The robbers are described as black males, between the ages of 19-to-23 and all with average builds. The woman is described as being mixed race.
This is not in the least vague. The Lincoln Journal Star has gone from suppressing suspect descriptions in armed robberies, to telling direct lies about them.
