Hang On!

I reckon you're about to see a big splash in the papers about a UK expat, PR, whom I have known and worked with for many years. Kinda sad.

Would that be a certain Mr. T?

Well SE, based on your working relationship with Mr T, is he really that kind of person portrayed by TOC?

He's always been somewhat brusque and 'in your face'. Really was SAS, and I know he quit when his duties turned to hunting down drug dealers and killing them... wasn't willing to be judge and executioner in a non war environment.

I'm surprised to see this, though. Although he could go to the edge he always behaved with civility. I can only guess that his life isn't working as he might want it to work... this has been my observation of others who have been prone to unexpected, explosive violence... a trigger, and the poor bugger gets the anger and frustration of a dozen other things inside Mr. T that have nothing to do with him.
