I don’t know why it’s important to anybody. I certainly do not need to explain my reasoning for getting a driver’s license and a good old fashioned “beater with a heater.” But yes, as you saw from the photo Patrick Grady posted on his website when he drove through our parking lot on a muggy, rainy day in Saint Francis (and thank the Lord for parking lot surveillance cameras), I do, in fact, own a rust bucket for getting around town.
For longer trips, like the one I took today, I rent cars,
And I learned lots of stuff on my trip today.
For instance, Patrick Grady does not have a valid stalking no-contact order on me. Never did. Law enforcement computers do not lie.
Second, I learned about some BAD things.
You know what’s BAD?
Using a person’s social security number to get access to information that you are not entitled to have.
Patrick Grady is not entitled to have my Drivers’ License number. He used an ill-gotten copy of my SSN to secure information he is not entitled to.
And guess what?
The State of Illinois calls that “Aggravated Identity Theft” because it was done to a person older than 60, with a disability.
In Illinois, they call that a Class 2 Felony.
Stalking, like driving through my parking lot to get a picture of my car? That’s a Class 4 felony.
Oh, BTW… the entries about me in Encyclopedia Dramatica? The copy I saved of Purloined Parody Productions? And every page of your fecund website, Patrick? To be gone over with a fine toothed comb.
Don’t wanna miss anything.
But… Wow. Up to 10 years in PRISON? Just to prove I have a CAR? Anyone who assisted you in stealing my SSN will also be “looked at very carefully.”
But I just gotta say…
That’s dedication to a bit, Patrick.
Oh, tomorrow I’m getting contact lenses. Or is that TMI?
