My Rotund Midwestern Attorney

Steven Nyquist, AKA Dick Niggler, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, riding his bike to work last week. A real temp of -25F.
His record as a young wrestler, in 224 matches: No ties, no losses. Undefeated.
My guess: he could kick Raoul Duke's ass. Twice.

Dicks, Needles, and Guns

Larry Clark Devil Msg.

Larry Clark Didn't Cry

My former employer.

A little time will make me sad because now I am satan

Stairway Backfaced

Hanging out in a treehouse in Paramus, NJ in 1978, I heard this.

Jesus was a Carpenter

And so is Jan Munroe

He's also a mime, a writer, a dancer and a great white hunter.
A great humanitarian, a terrific entertainer, and a close personal friend of 25 years.
