"I have sworn, upon the Altar of God, eternal hostility toward every form of tyranny over the mind of man." Jefferson
Well, I'd won the Texas Press Association's column writing contest twice by the time I was 33, built a house, had two healthy kids. Thank goodness for this nation (and any others) nobody had asked me to write any constitutions. In retrospect things were pretty simple back then for me. I don't remember being driven by a need for accomplishments, but I didn't want to be where I was then for the rest of my life. I wasn't smart enough to know it back then but I had a serious lack of "people" skills. So I'd have to say I was propably pushing the envelope of where I should have been at 33 and needed a lot more molding and shaping before I was going to accomplish much more.
