    in the words of the chap about to be tossed on the death cart- ‘i’m not dead yet!’

    You know, Jim shares a birthday with John McCain, Ingrid Bergman, and Michael Jackson.

    And Esteban shares a birthday with Jim West. But he’s only 3/8ths as old, is too smart to run for president, isn’t as good looking as Ingrid Bergman and I don’t know if I would want to see him dance.

    He’s 38. Esteban is 30. They’re practically twins.

    Twins? As I recall, the realization that I was born on his 18th birthday triggered Jim’s involvement with Geritol. 😉
