Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My screen name is very boring; my initials. I came to the internet in the late nineties to trade stocks during the technology boom. At that time I used my real first and last names on the yahoo stock message boards. My son kept saying take a screen name but I never followed his advice. When I first started commenting on the political boards, (bilmon and kos) I took my initials. Of course, now anyone can see my real name by clicking on one of my photos and going to my picassa web album.
I think I'm freer on the internet than I am in person. Relationships are less risky on the internet and you can step away for a few minutes if you need some reflection. But I now know so many people on ET that I can't say there's a difference; life is very interesting in these times.

Hey, Grandma Moses started late!
