Like me and too many others, he had lost his upscale personal possessions and prestigious professional career hostage to a viciously vile y2k fascist revival of charmless southern inhumanities and innerfamilial criminal insanities. He's an expert researcher/speaker on the Black Panthers also. And a Harvard, and Oxford Universities, PhD. And past-imperfect Green Party rep official.
