Considering I lived through the 90s without a million dollars, I could most certainly use that million dollars without the internet all the same, in the 90s. I’d probably still be in Los Angeles…maybe own a warehouse east of Little Tokyo, where I had searched high and low for an affordable live-in artist space…back in the 90s.

I lived through the 90s. Give me a million dollars and I’ll happily swear off the Internet and live in the real world.

May I keep dial-in e-mail?

My net worth is not even half a million bucks and I’ll tell you right now you can keep your money… not even a close call. New Englanders have 3 superbowls, 2 world series, and an NBA and NHL championship in their back pockets along with that iPhone! If the lord take me in my sleep tonight I’ll die greatful!
