My detractors have been accusing me of all kinds of things lately all over the internet. For example, Frank Runninghorse (Steven Bruce Orcutt, a registered sex offender who uses a fake Native American alias) and Tom Lacey of the Peace & Freedom Party accuse me of being a government COINTELPRO agent while Ed Saucerman and Rick Von Geldern take the opposite position, claiming I’m a left-wing extremist who’s anti-law enforcement. Simultaneously, I’m getting vilified from the Ayala family (which controls a tiny weirdo-cult faction of La Raza Unida Party) who have accused me of everything from having had an affair with a member of my NOW Chapter’s board to sending some kind of bogus letters to a couple of people (fantasies on their part).
There is however one thing I’m prepared to plead guilty to: I’m a Zygodactyl!
This confession shouldn’t actually shock anybody who saw my blog entry in which I displayed a photo of my foot compared to a Chimpanzee foot:
The structure of my feet and toes is comparable not only to Chimpanzees and Bonobos, is known alternatively as type I syndactyly or zygodactyly. It’s also the foot structure of 3.2 million year old Australopithicines. Turns out I’m not the only person who has this. One of my friends, who like me shares some ancestry from the Ukraine, has it too and I recently found that Peter Christy, my “genetic cousin” who is Y Chromosome Haplogroup G like me (I’m subclade G2c while he’s G2a) has it as well:
Cousin Peter's toes
We’re in famous (or infamous) company with this trait, inasmuch as Joseph Stalin (who was G2a) had it as well:
