I chose mine on a whim and did not think of it as hiding from anything. I stand by what I post, but I only post what I stand by. Sometimes, I get douchy, but I am generally fair and level headed. My name is Paul Torres.
commented on What Would Seattle-Flavored Ice Cream Taste Like?
Huckleberries or raspberries and latte-vanilla?
Maybe with coffee beans, but no coffee beans unless it's discussed in pre-meetings where a dingy faced white person with a long frizzy gray pony tail speaks up about Seattle is losing itself to non-native coffee beans.... I digress....

I wonder if the firearms debate is fueling people's defiance. So, in a night of socializing, the conversation goes like this
"Them stupid liberals and n- president ain't gonna tell me what to do..." Lou puts down his cards and gets up to scratch himself.
"Yeah Betsy, show us what you got, girl..." Loraine swigs her Miller and ashes twice on the concrete floor
Betsy runs upstairs her tank top strap stretched down her shoulder. She's half drunk but, snatches up her rifle, " Look girlfriends, my man bought me this new.... " Bam.
commented on Playing Russian Roulette With Your Online Social Presence
I started FB early on and at first didn't have friends to connect with on it. Finally every one else caught on it and I grew tired of it. I deleted my account for one year. Within eight hours of me being back on FB, I received a message from a local publisher to write for thier news outlet. This built my confidence and led to other writing gigs. I now use FB to advertise my writing. I guess I am using it like LinkedIn.
