The first quarter-century, a retrospective

25 years ago I was born in Phoenix, AZ. I've managed to graduate from college, get a good job, buy a house and survive my first week of law school. I've dated a lot of cool women, made a lot of cool friends, and thrown a few good parties. I've fed refugees in Albania, been evacuated from a square in Jerusalem by a bomb threat, and walked through the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. I've lived in Phoenix, Yuma, Kansas City, White Sands Missile Range, Binghamton, Dominica, Lanesboro, Naperville, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, and some little town outside Lansing, Michigan. I've served in half a dozen positions in the Libertarian Party, been to three Libertarian National Conventions, and appeared once a month on the radio for about three straight years now. I've skydived, learned to ride a motorcycle, parasailed, scuba dived, rock climbed, and got my shodan in kendo.

Thank you to everyone who has touched my life. Here's looking forward to sharing the next 25 years with you.

Yours truly,
Mr. X
