May 25, 2017

Dear State Representative Howard,

As a former constituent of yours in Austin, I want to thank you for the very kind interest you have conveyed in regard to my own living conditions and my quality of life in this capital city of Texas.

This is a Texas Open Records request in which I
seek to obtain from you a copy of any and all phone messages or computer records or e-mail letters or letters or reports or memoranda or proposed bills before the Legislature or any other written communications that you or any staff member of yours at that time have written or generated or forwarded or sent or mailed or e-mailed or FAXed or received at any time since 12:01 January 1, 2011, and that, in each such case, directly refer or refers in any way either to myself, John Kevin McMillan of northwest Austin, or to my still-one-member-only and non-Christian Progressive Prohibitionist Religion.

EXCLUDED from the scope of this public-information request are any and all letters or e-mail letters that were exclusively and solely written by myself, John Kevin McMillan of Austin.

My e-mail address is: mcmillanj@att.net.

I am a native of Lincoln, Nebraska. I spent most of my childhood in the Austin area. I have academic degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I have been a resident of Austin, Texas, on a continuous and uninterrupted basis ever since mid-March 1997.

My Progressive Prohibitionist Religion is an implicitly deistic, prayer-less, rational-goal-setting-minded, non-atheistic, "Honor Society" religion with very stringent membership-eligibility requirements.

I am the founder and only approved current member of that fully independent new religion for myself. My religion is anti-drinking-alcohol and anti-tobacco and anti-marijuana-minded and anti-facial-hair-minded and anti-tattoos-minded and anti-anonymous-communications-minded and anti-thought-control-projects-minded and anti-stalking and emphatically opposed to the sex crime of rape.

During the multi-year time period applicable to this public information request, I myself resided as an official rent-paying tenant or official rent-paying occupant at the following apartment units or hotel rooms:

---Wind River Crossing Apartments, 11411 Research Boulevard, Apt. 325, Austin, Texas, 78759. I resided in that particular apartment unit from January 2002 until July 29, 2015, when my lease to reside there as an official rent-paying tenant expired after the management team gave prior notice earlier in 2015 that it had chosen not to renew that lease for me and my one total official roommate at that time.

---Crossland Economy Studios, 12621 Hymeadow Road, Room 133, Austin, Texas, 78729. I officially resided as a rent-paying tenant at this particular Extended Stay America hotel and efficiency apartments facility in Williamson County, Texas, and also in Austin, Texas, from July 29, 2015, until late September 2015.

---Village Oaks Apartments, 10926 Jollyville Road, Building 9, Apt. 902, Austin, Texas, 78759, ever since late September 2015.

I hope to hear from you soon in response to this public-information request from myself.

Incidentally, please let me know as soon as possible if you sense that you might have to charge me more than $20 in administrative fees you expect to incur from processing this public-information request from myself.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

John Kevin McMillan, a former resident of the Boston area of Massachusetts who is myself a certified direct descendant of the Rev. William Brewster---the great Puritan religious leader who served as Head Chaplain on the Mayflower and as an adviser to Plymouth Colony Governor William Bradford in what is now the U.S. Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Dear Highly-Esteemed State Senator Kirk Watson of the Texas Legislature in Austin,

Thank you again for a friendly official reply letter on official City of Austin letterhead that you wrote and signed and mailed to me in the late 1990s, during a prior period of yours in which you served as my and others' duly-elected Mayor of Austin. 


Your signed reply letter to me was in response to a public-policy recommendation I had made in my capacity as the president and only approved member of the non-Christian and quality-of-life-minded and implicitly-deistic and non-atheistic Progressive Prohibitionist Religion---a new and non-praying, rational-goals-setting-minded, drinking-alcohol-free, illicit-drug-free, anti-tobacco-minded, anti-facial-hair-minded, anti-tattoos-minded, anti-profanity-in-everyday-speech-minded, anti-anonymous-communications-minded, and anti-thought-control-projects-minded, and anti-stalking "Honor Society" religion with very stringent membership-eligibility requirements.

Subject: 5-18-16 proposed revisions to TX Open Records Act

Dear State Rep. Naishtat and Senator Watson,

As a current constituent of each of you, I would appreciate it if either of you, or any of your other highly-esteemed colleagues in the Texas Legislature, would please propose Legislative revisions to the Texas Open Records Act that:

---require the respondent in each of their reply letters to a cited requestor, or in any letter they might choose to write and send to the Attorney General of Texas that refer to a specific public-information request from that requestor, to clearly state the date of the letter or E-mail public-information request (PIR) from the requestor, the date when that PIR was officially received by the respondent, and the first and last name of the requestor.

----require the Attorney General of Texas to cite the full legal name of the applicable public-information requestor, and the date and official date of receipt that individual's cited public information request, and the date of the letter from the government-agency respondent that requested a ruling from the Attorney General on that PIR, in each and every reply letter or reply E-mail letter or letter or report that that state agency mails or sends or generates that refers to that PIR.

These two proposed revisions to state law should help to eliminate a lot of confusion that can develop for the public-information requestor in Texas as he attempts to determine which PIR of his was the one that elicited any given reply letter he receives from a government agency, along with the date of that particular PIR he had submitted.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

John Kevin McMillan.

Dear State Senator Watson,

I would like to remind you, Senator, that you have not yet acknowledged or sent me a reply note in response to the following one total public-policy question that I have posed to yourself relating to the continuous, year-round, medically injurious noise pollution in Austin, Texas, to which I have been subjected against my wishes for decades.

I wish to again emphasize to you, Senator, that a nationally renowned ear, nose, and throat medical specialist in Austin, Dr. David Tobey, has informed me during a recent medical appointment I had with him that permanent damage to my own hearing capacity and medical health from that noise pollution I myself did not generate or authorize has been significant and very alarmingly injurious in nature toward myself.

Please respond to this as soon as possible in your role as a distinguished State Senator who is also yourself a private attorney member of the State Bar of Texas.

A courtesy carbon-copy to each of you governmental leaders and civic leaders on the following E-mail correspondence of mine about medically injurious noise pollution inflicted on myself against my wishes in Austin, Texas (in Travis as well as Williamson counties), for which no alleged source of that continuous and year-round noise pollution has ever been identified to me at any time by ANY City of Austin official, ANY Travis County Government official, ANY Williamson County Government official, ANY State Government of Texas official, or ANY U.S. Government official. Nor has any media company or religious group or political group ever provided me with that very important factual information.

One private attorney member of the State Bar of Texas, himself a very distinguished alumnus of the University of South Texas Law School in Houston, did helpfully inform me in a recent prior week that he believes I have myself been victimized by illegal noise pollution in Austin, Texas, that comprises a violation of the state penal code of Texas, that courageously insightful private attorney helpfully informed myself. I am very grateful to that first-rate attorney for also emphasizing to me that in addition to my filing criminal charges in this matter, I have the legal right to myself also file a lawsuit in a court of law in Texas (and elsewhere, I would assume) against the alleged source of that unwanted noise pollution victimizing myself.

I would appreciate any reply letter from any of you in which you provide me with any information or impressions you are willing to share with me in regard to this very important legal and human-rights matter for myself. For instance: WHICH MEDIA COMPANY or other media organization, such as a non-profit group of any type, do YOU yourself suspect is the most likely to have subjected me in my own life to continuous and year-round and medically injurious noise pollution that I definitely DO NOT want in my own life.

Sincerely and Best Wishes from a teetotaling (no alcohol), tobacco-free, consistently civil and law-abiding (I have no criminal-conviction record, in fact, as the Texas Department of Public Safety has helpfully confirmed for me in the last few years), non-stalking, clean-talking, honest, tattoo-less, facially-cleanshaven, gainfully employed, fully ambulatory, single adult non-Christian gentleman in Austin, Texas, who myself fervently opposes thought-control projects, brainwashing projects, and violations of the privacy rights of benevolent and law-abiding Americans such as myself.

Dear State Senator Watson,

In your role as my duly elected state senator, do you yourself know or sense that you have possibly identified the alleged source of the continuous and year-round noise pollution (cited below in legal correspondence from myself) that has severely and permanently damaged my own hearing capacity and medical health, and that puts me at risk of "going deaf" in Austin, Texas, in the foreseeable future.

I should emphasize to you, Senator Watson, that I myself did NOT authorize the cited noise pollution, nor did I generate it, nor am I the source of the cited noise pollution that has significantly injured myself in Austin, Texas, over a multi-year period, including this year. I definitely do NOT want the cited noise pollution in my own life, as you are no doubt very aware.

Thank you in advance, Senator Watson, for your prompt response to this follow-up question from myself. I am posing this question to you because my duly elected state representative, Rep. Donna Howard, informed me in writing (see below) through one of her top legislative staff members, Scott Daigle, that she herself does not know the source of the noise pollution violating my privacy rights about which I have complained to Rep. Howard on numerous occasions.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

Dear Scott,

Thank you for kindly authorizing me today to share with you the following (see below) E-mail correspondence of mine relating to what I believe is a major legal-liability issue facing state and local government in Austin, Texas.

I still, to this day, have not received any reply E-mail note of any type from the Federal Trade Commission in response to the question I posed to that federal agency in my March 5, 2011-dated (see below) E-mail letter about continuous, year-round noise pollution victimizing myself and injuring myself in Austin, Texas, over a multi-year period.

You indicated in our phone conversation today that State Rep. Donna Howard, my duly elected state legislator from the Austin area, does not know the name of the media company or media entity, or the name of the individual or individuals, who or that have inflicted constant, year-round, medically injurious noise pollution on myself in Austin, Texas, during the time period since I most recently moved back to Austin in mid-March 1997.

Is that a correct paraphrasing of your statement to me on the telephone today?

Thank you in advance for your helpful reply to that one follow-up question from myself.

Subject: Fw: 3-12-11 note re: my hearing-loss complaint to FTC]

Dear Very Distinguished and Influential Officials of the American Academy of Audiology,

I would appreciate any reply letter from any of you officials about this very important human-rights issue relating to permanent and significant hearing loss inflicted on me by year-round, continuous noise pollution occurring against my wishes and without my consent over a multi-decade period, including at present, in Austin, Texas.

Just this morning, for instance, I suffered a ringing sound in my left ear when I awoke from my sleep inside my very nice apartment unit in northwest Austin.

Please note the cited medical findings (see below) from Dr. David Tobey, a nationally renowned ear, nose, and throat medical specialist in Austin, about the noise pollution-inflicted damage to my medical health in Austin, Texas, that he has statistically documented in the period since 2005. I should mention that 2005 was the very first year in which Dr. Tobey examined me inside his ENT medical clinic in northwest Austin.

Prior to that, a Dr. Mueller (ENT medical specialist based at Medical Arts Square near the UT-Austin Law School) statistically documented my hearing capacity in the late 1990s and removed massive quantities of wax from each of my ears during that medical appointment I had scheduled in advance with himself. Dr. Mueller has since retired, from what I understand.

Dr. Tobey has helpfully emphasized to me inside his medical clinic in northwest Austin that I myself am definitely NOT the source of the injurious noise pollution, nor did I cause it or request it or generate it, Dr. Tobey has helpfully pointed out.

I have provided written authorization to Dr. Tobey to discuss his medical findings about me with any person or organization or government official or attorney who might ever contact Dr. Tobey at any time.

Thank you in advance for your very kind interest in my own quality of life in Austin, Texas.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

John Kevin McMillan,

I would appreciate receiving a reply letter from ANY of you individuals who, like me, strongly believe that no media company and no corporation---no matter how powerful or financially successful it may be---should have the legal right to inflict significant permanent hearing loss, and the additional risk of deafness as well, on an American citizen (myself, for instance) in a context violating that American citizen's privacy rights.

Thank you in advance for your very kind interest in this public-policy issue and legal issue in American society of today.

I should mention, incidentally, that one private attorney in Austin, Texas, whom I've recently consulted about this did state to me last month inside his law office that he is very sure that I've been victimized by noise pollution violating my privacy rights----noise pollution, he emphasized, that comprises illegal and criminal activity on the part of the individual or individuals perpetrating that noise pollution on myself, he stated.

The same litigation-minded private attorney emphasized to me during the one-to-one legal consultation I had with him inside his law office near downtown Austin, that a civil-law lawsuit on my behalf can also be filed in a court of law in Austin, Texas, against the alleged source of that noise pollution, provided that a cited culprit or "respondent" could be cited by name in that lawsuit, that private attorney informed me.

I would appreciate any information that any of you are willing to share with me about the alleged source of the flagrantly illegal noise pollution victimizing myself in Austin, Texas, on a continuous and year-round basis ever since I moved back to Austin in mid-March of 1997, most recently.

Best Wishes,

John Kevin McMillan.

Subject: 3-5-11 legal complaint-related question to Federal Trade Commission

Dear Federal Trade Commission Officials in Washington, D.C.,

Is there any circumstance in which your federal agency would pursue legal actions, such as a lawsuit in a court of law, to lawfully and in a civil manner prevent or stop a business entity (such as an unethical media company, for instance) from inflicting medically injurious noise pollution on an American citizen (myself, for instance) against his wishes in a context that violated his own privacy rights.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

noise pollution victim and longtime Texas resident John Kevin McMillan of Austin, Texas. I have most recently resided inside Austin proper on a continuous basis ever since mid-March of 1997; and I have resided inside Texas ever since January 1988, when I moved back to Texas from Quincy, Massachusetts.

My mailing address: 11411 Research Boulevard, Apt. 325, Austin, Texas, 78759.
Home phone: (512) 342-2295.

cc: Dr. David Tobey, a nationally renowned ear, nose, and throat medical specialist in Austin, Texas, who has helpfully evaluated my hearing capacity and medical health on several occasions since 2005. Dr. Tobey has determined, with help from statistical reports about my hearing capacity that he has compiled, that permanent and irreversible damage to my hearing capacity and medical health from continuous, year-round noise pollution in Austin, Texas, during that multi-year period since 2005 has been significant in nature, Dr. Tobey has informed me. Dr. Tobey has also recently stated to me in person inside his medical clinic, during a medical examination of me, that permanent damage to my own hearing capacity and medical health resulting from my involuntary exposure to noise pollution in Austin, Texas, has been of the magnitude that an officer of the Austin Police Department in Austin, Texas, would himself sustain over the course of his entire career with that municipal law-enforcement agency.

Dr. Tobey ---- whose medical internship was in Boston, Mass. ---- has helpfully stated to me during medical examinations of me in recent years that he is very sure that I myself did NOT authorize the cited noise pollution, nor did I request it, nor did I generate it myself in any way, Dr. Tobey has helpfully assured me in person inside his medical clinic in northwest Austin.

Subject: 6-16-14 question for aide to Sen. Watson re: alleged-continuous-sex-crimes case

Dear Ms. Defrates,

Does Senator Kirk Watson support full privacy rights for me and my legal and human right to sleep alone, without anyone else inside my private bedroom at that time, and to also myself sleep UN-molested as well as UN-harmed and UN-injured and UN-raped, inside my bolt-locked private bedroom of my rental apartment uit thoughout the entirety of any and all time periods when I am sleeping or napping?

I might add that the ONLY exception to that legal right for myself I am seeking and agree to authorize would be if the Texas Department of Public Safety, a reliable and trusted former employer of mine, or the Travis County Sheriff's Office or the Dallas County District Attorney's Office or the Dallas County Sheriff's Office or some other reputable government agency or government official, such as the FBI or the U.S. Department of Homeland Security or U,S. President Obama, or the very distiguished State of Texas Senator Kirk Watson himself, or possibly the Austin Police Department or the Travis County DA's Office, were to be willing to provide me with top-secret and externally controlled electronic surveillance of my entire bedroom per se and my entire bathroom per se on a temporary multi-day or multi-week basis.

I am a low-income single adult white gentleman, and I cannot financially afford ADT surveillance of my private bedroom or bathroom at present.

I ALWAYS sleep alone, and I have ALWAYS been completely celibate throughout the entirety of all of my conscious or waking hours, with no sexual contact or intimate physical contact of any type with any person or any creature, for that matter, at any time ever since and including the date when I moved into Apartment 325 in January 2002 at this Westdale-managed apartment complex in northwest Austin.

Any and all DNA-swab evidence ever since January 2002, for instance, that was obtained from my own anus or buttocks or genitals or mouth or other part of my body, and that can be traced to a human or animal DNA source OTHER than myself, is therefore very clear and convicing criminal-law evidence and legal proof in a court of law in Austin that I was, in fact, raped by that alleged criminal person or creature.

I feel hopeful that either Westdale headquarters officials in Dallas or my professionally polite general manager, Ms. Coker, would agree to government-provided top-secret electronic surveillance of my bedroom and bathroom on a temporary multi-day or multi-week basis during this time period.

The legal address for Westdale's corporate headquarteers in Dallas, Texas, is: 3100 Monticello Avenue, Suite 600, Dallas, Texas, 75205, with their headqauarters office phone number being: (214) 515-7000.

The highly-regarded general manager of my apartment complex is Ann Coker, and her office phone number is: (512) 346-1902.

Ms. Defrates, thank you for your very kind interest in this alleged-personal-injury-crimes, including during my sleep, and alleged-anal-rape-crimes-during-my-sleep crime case in which I am the self-idetified victim on a daily and year-round and still-to-this-very-morning-continuing basis inside my bolt-locked apartment unit at Wind River Crossing.

I hope to hear your reply note on this in the very near future.

Sincerely and Best Wishes,

John Kevin McMillan, a law-abiding and gainfully employed, longtime-celibate-by-choice, always-sober (I have NEVER consumed any alcoholic berverage at any time, anywhere in the entire world, on any occasion since the late summer of 1990), lifelong-tobacco-free and anti-tobacco-minded, white non-Hispanic non-Jewish single adult male constituent of Senator Watson. I am also a lifelong non-Chrisitan gentleman who, unlike many of the non-Christian men of Travis County, Texas, does not myself have any criminal-conviction record.

A SPECIAL 'THANK YOU' TO THE LAW-ABIDING AND HONORABLE PERSONS WHO EACH INVITED ME TO A PARTY OR DINNER EVENT THAT THEY HOSTED:


(FACTUAL AND LEGAL NOTE: IN THE SECOND DECADE OF THE 21ST CENTURY, I HAVE RECEIVED ZERO INVITATIONS TO MYSELF ATTEND A PARTY OR DINNER EVENT BEING HELD INSIDE ANYONE'S HOME OR APARTMENT UNIT ANYWHERE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS. IN THAT REGARD, TWO KIND AUSTIN-BASED PERSONAL FRIENDS OF MINE, EACH OF THEM FORMER CLASSMATES OF MINE AT STEPHEN F. AUSTIN HIGH SCHOOL OF AUSTIN INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT, DID HELPFULLY VOLUNTEER TO ME SEVERAL MONTHS AGO THAT MY HAVING A REPUTATION THESE DAYS FOR MYSELF BEING A REPORTED ANAL-RAPE-CRIMES-AND-PERSONAL-INJURY-CRIMES VICTIM IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, THIS PARTICULAR DECADE HAS APPARENTLY REPULSED MANY OF THE PERSONS WHO OTHERWISE MIGHT HAVE AGREED TO SHARE A MEAL WITH ME IN THIS STATE CAPITAL CITY OF AUSTIN.)

---In the first decade of this 21st Century, an Anglo gentleman from Florida named Chris Keimling invited me to attend a party he was hosting in his home in south Austin. He politely stated to me that he was reluctant about inviting me, since "you are too straight for my friends", he stated. One of his male friends at the event I attended was himself employed by the Travis County Sheriff's Office in Austin, according to what that friend of Chris's stated to me at the party. I was very surprised by this, since I had been led to believe in advance that I was myself possibly "too straight" to fit in well at that party.

--In the first decade of the 21st Century, Stephen and Christy Whaley, an Anglo married couple residing at the same apartment complex as myself, Wind River Crossing Apartments in northwest Austin, kindly invited me to attend a Holiday-Season party inside their apartment unit. I enjoyed attending the event.

--In the first decade of the 21st Century, another household at Wind River Crossing Apartments in northwest Austin---or possibly Toni, the kindly African-American mother of one of the two party hosts in the cited household, with Toni having previously resided in Fort Worth, Texas, for many years--invited me to attend a Holiday Season dinner event inside their apartment. One of the hosts or participants in that event stated that he was a male adult fiction writer, and that Anglo man commented to me that my own combination of political and religious and personal beliefs was very incompatible with the Austin area, in his opinion.


--Thumper Gibson, a friendly Anglo gentleman in Sweetwater, Texas, or possibly an older member of his family, in November 1990 invited me to attend a Thanksgiving dinner event that year inside his parents' or grandparents' home in Sweetwater. I accepted the invitation and was delighted by that dinner party experience.

---Chris Barbee, the Anglo male editor of the El Campo "Leader-News" general-circulation semi-weekly newspaper in El Campo, Texas, in 1988 invited me as an education-beat staff reporter of his to attend a dinner party inside his or his father Fred Barbee's home in El Campo. I accepted the invitation and enjoyed that event. I believe that Chris Barbee in 1988 or 1989 also invited me to attend at least one party inside his and his wife Carol's home, and I attended.

---In 1987 or 1988, Heidi Wittenborn, an Anglo female former classmate of mine at Stephen F. Austin High School in Austin, Texas, very generously invited me to attend a party being hosted by Heidi's mother inside the latter individual's home in west Austin. I attended the event and enjoyed it.

--In 1984, an Anglo female Cambridge, Mass.-based friend of an Anglo married-woman friend of mine (Sylvia) in the Worcester area of Massachusetts, agreed to let me accompany Sylvia and her husband to a "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" party the former lady hosted inside her own condominium apartment in Cambridge. I attended the event, but spent my time instead alone in a separate room of that apartment while reading in its entirety a short story by Dorothy Parker entitled "The Big Blonde." I politely pursued that solitudinous activity because I myself did not understand the humor or content of the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" media event. 
After I rejoined the group at that party, the hostess of the event did emphatically state to me in the presence of other party guests without any clear context to her outburst: "YOU (John McMillan) HAVE A MASSIVE INFERIORITY COMPLEX!" 

I did not enjoy that particular party, but appreciated being invited to attend by Sylvia and her husband.

--Sylvia and her husband in the Worcester area of Massachusetts in 1984 invited me to attend a "Trivial Pursuit" board-game party inside their home. I accepted the invitation and enjoyed the party.

---In December 1983 or December 1984, the boyfriend of Victoria Lustig, who herself was the older sister of "Minnesota Daily" staff writer Claudia Lustig, invited me to attend an alcohol-guzzling party inside either his fraternity house near the University of Minnesota campus or the fraternity house of  a male friend of his. I drank Manhattans, if I remember correctly, at that frat house party, and I participated in a jovial and good-humored alcohol-induced mock debate with some of the college student fraternity members.

--In 1981, during a period shortly after I had moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, from New Ulm, Minnesota, one new acquaintance of mine, Michael Crothers, a fiction writer and University of Minnesota student, apparently was the individual who made one or two phone calls to me in which he invited me to participate in a weekly University of Minnesota International Center party he was himself also attending that was being hosted on Friday afternoons on that public-university campus in Minneapolis. I attended, an enjoyed the event each time.

--Mrs. Janet Rosenbloom, an Anglo female assistant editor at "The Journal" daily newspaper in New Ulm, Minnesota, in 1980 or 1981 very kindly invited me to have dinner with her and her family, including her husband, Brown County Judge Noah Rosenbloom, inside their home in New Ulm. I accepted the invitation, and was in awe of the great variety of healthful vegetables that Mrs. Rosenbloom served everyone at that event I also attended.

--In the late summer or fall of 1979, the male managing editor of the "Fort Myers News-Press," a Gannett-owned daily newspaper for which I was employed as a Naples bureau reporter in Collier County, Florida, invited all of his news and editorial staff to attend an outdoor party at his home near or in Fort Myers, Florida. The highlight for many of those attending was on taking plunges in the good-sized outdoor swimming pool owned by our managing editor.

---In 1979, an Anglo male visitor to the United States from Sweden, Lars (with whom I had had a very pleasant outdoor first-time conversation in my first-ever meeting with him and an Anglo male friend of his from Stockholm at an outdoor bar of The Candy Store nightclub along the Strip in Fort Lauderdale), made a phone call to me at my apartment unit near Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in which he invited me to attend a dinner event inside his parents' mobile home in a suburb north of Fort Lauderdale. That event was hosted by his retired parents from Sweden. I gladly accepted that invitation, and I enjoyed the meal, which I believe featured Swedish meatballs. I received a nice compliment from his kindly mother at the event. She volunteered to me that I reminded her of a favorite professional humorist of hers in Sweden.

---an admirably slender and friendly as well as attractive brunette-haired Anglo female suburban-beat reporter for the "Fort Lauderdale News-Sentinel" daily newspaper who stated that she was a University of Missouri Journalism School graduate, in 1979 very kindly invited me to attend a party she hosted inside her suburban home in western Broward County, Florida. I accepted, and admired her friendly hospitality. Her hospitality was especially impressive since I was employed at the time by the Miami Herald Company, which issued my paychecks to me at my "Broward Times" semi-weekly newspaper workplace in Tamarac, Florida. The "Miami Herald" company, which also maintained a news bureau of its own in Fort Lauderdale, competed with the "Fort Lauderdale News-Sentinel" in that region of Florida.

--In 1979, Deborah E. Williams, an Anglo female friendly classmate of mine in an English Composition class taught by a male Ohio State University alumnus and UT-Austin professor of English, herself invited me to a party inside her or her boyfriend's home or apartment near the University of Texas at Austin campus in central Austin. I enjoyed having a cheerful and good-humored discussion and "mock debate" involving myself and her boyfriend, Ted, and Deborah Williams's polite mother, during that social event. Ted and I each politely emphasized that each of us questioned the wisdom of the so-called separatist movement by those American women during that period who themselves stated that they wanted to sever all ties with men. Deborah Williams's mother repeatedly and politely stated that she herself supported separatism.

--In 1978 or 1979, the above-cited Anglo male English Composition instructor of mine at UT-Austin invited his entire class, including myself, to attend a party inside his home or apartment in Austin. I appreciated the invitation, and attended the event.

--In 1978 or 1979, a very friendly and talented and good-humored Anglo female photographer for "The Daily Texan" who was also herself a coworker of mine for that student newspaper on the UT-Austin campus, invited her "Daily Texan" coworkers, including myself, to attend a party inside her home or apartment. I enjoyed attending that event in Austin.

--In 1978 or 1977, "Daily Texan" coworker and staff cartoonist Berke Breathed, who had a very polite habit of immediately greeting me in a respectful manner whenever I entered the newsroom of that student newspaper on the UT-Austin campus, invited all of his coworkers, including myself, to attend a party he hosted near the eastern boundary of the main UT-Austin campus in central Austin. I was told during that party that his pretty brunette girlfriend attending the event was herself either from Spain or all or nearly all of her own ancestry was in Spain.


--Dean Marlene Barrett, my Anglo female faculty adviser at Washington University in St. Louis who was also an administrator at that university, in 1975 invited me to attend a Spaghetti Dinner party she hosted inside her home located a matter of blocks from the Washington University campus. I attended the event and enjoyed it, though I found it a bit sad to be reminded at the event that Dean Barrett was divorced from her husband, and she had the very awkward and no-doubt stressful experience of working on the same campus as himself.

---Mrs. Julia Mellenbruch, my Anglo female Spanish teacher at Stephen F. Austin High School, in 1974 or 1973 invited me and other schoolmates enrolled in her Spanish classes , to attend a Gazpacho party she hosted inside her home. The Gazpacho was delicious, and I greatly enjoyed that event.

---McDonald Smith Jr., an Anglo male high school student colleague of mine on the Stephen F. Austin High School debate squad, on two or more occasions in 1973 and 1974 invited me to attend parties he hosted inside his UT-Austin art professor father's home in the Tarrytown section of west Austin. I greatly enjoyed those events, and listened appreciatively as McDonald Jr. praised Italy for being a favorite country of his.
