    Legalese speaking

    Umm. Hello.

    I'm currently studying to be a paralegal, and stumbled upon this site a few weeks ago when I was doing a Bing search. Lurked a little, thought I'd register.

    Just a guy from West Allis, WI here. (it's locally called 'stallis, and is the lower middle class suburb of Milwaukee best known for hosting the State Fair). I like it though. It's very walkable, and the local government is going a good job of reinventing the former manufacturing economy. There's alot of small town feel here. Everyone knows everyone, and families don't venture far. (I live a few blocks from the first house my parernts had when I ws born, which is the same house my dad grew up in).

    So, hello.

    Welcome from an inner ring burb of Washington DC
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
