"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

3. My parents owned a tavern while I was growing up, The Blackhawk Tap.
4. I married my high school sweetheart.
5. My favorite TV show of all time is the soap opera Days of our Lives.
6. I almost died in 2001 and don't remember the first 3 weeks after I woke up, but can remember the doctor's talking in the emergency room, wondering if they should suture the lacerations to the top of my head because they didn't expect me to last the night.  Boy I fooled them.
