...seriously, I am 6'2", was relatively athletic, but not good enough at anything to turn pro, and was less frightened of running into burning buildings than i was of showing up one day at the Social Security office with an assault rifle, and dressed in full camo fatigues.  It was just a natural for me.  Plus, I already knew from my Navy days about blood, and people dying in the most horrible and unexpected ways, so I had street cred.:)

​Yep.  Paige can hold his own.

​...I shaved my beard and got a haircut for the panel interview.  At the time, I think it was before drug testing (1986).

​It's always good to catch a break.
