"argaming has always been a 'Hole In The Wall' for dreamers and misfits. We sort of collected together, drawn by some unseen force and created a new 'normal' in new and exciting world. Who and what we were in the 'real world' meant absolutely nothing.

Yay! Got there after ignoring half of etotheipi's advice the first time! Interesting article, and looking back, there is a lot of truth in it, even if my childhood in central Kansas was totally different. My gaming friend and I grew up to be at totally different ends of the political spectrum, but we were still friends.
