Thaddeus E. Thud is proud to welcome Professor Tweed L. Dumb to this corner of the Internet. Thad E. Thud emerged from the primordial ooze of self-censorship imposed by the modern University. Tweed L. Dumb is stuck in that ooze, and wants to sling it. Thad E. Thud is pseudonym that leads back to a regular old nym in a straight line, because Peter L. Kuras is no longer working at a University.
In other words, Thad E. Thud is not me. But also kind of is me. Tweed L. Dumb is really not me.
