Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue May 22, 2012, 01:15 PM

Thanks for the new forum

been here for what seems like the whole show. Not a huge poster but a constant reader and occaisonal poster.

This community has been and always will be top of my list of most visited sites,

By way of introduction, real name is Rich. Pretzel is a nickname I got way back when and has stuck. There's probably as many people where I grew up that only know me by Pretzel as they do Rich. But that's ok.

Grew up in the Pittsburgh area but have lived the last 30 years in the Philly suburbs. I work in the social services arena as a fiscal administrator and with each passing day I grow just a little angrier at our governor and him stooges.

Two grown kids of my own and 3 step kids. Just became a first time step granddad last week. It's kind of neat.

1. So "Pretzel" is your real-life nickname?

I always assumed it was a reference to the infamous George W. Bush pretzel incident.
