in reply to My username is...

I said mine was 'perfect', because I am a huge T-Bone Walker fan; my old bandmates used to razz me about it. It's been my net.name for over a decade. Of course, T-Bone Walker and I are about as similar as Bill and George Clinton ...

Still, I blame my parents. They named me after my dad's best friend, Richard, who died in Vietnam right before I was born. To name any child "Richard Burton" in 1967 was not only horribly cruel, but incredibly stupid: guess who's choosing their nursing home?

In truth, I blame it on Lyndon Johnson. If it weren't for him, my father's friend wouldn't have been there to be shot by the VC in the first place.
