Drak Birch. Born Kalamazoo, '56. Confused, frightened and bullied,
public school. Kalamazoo College, 1 year, dropped out; no foreign
study, no U of M Engineering Program; stayed confused. Paper mill et
other crap jobs. Poor (but never starving) metal artist (Thanks, Mom
and Dad!). Always working with my hands, part-time armored combat unit
until third knee blew out. Moved to Long Beach, CA; panelbeater on
classic and show cars (personally ignored by Iaccoca). Missed most
likely chance to spawn while stuck in Fresno. Throwing darts and
throwing up. Back to Lahng Beech / crank, alcohol, and overwork.
Finally got unconfused, moved home for love (Hi, Xen!). Diagnosed ADD
at age of 43. Speaks Blasphemy, Heresy, and "Treason" with equal fluency.
Planning to get even with Kalamazoo.
