This blog will be an official apology to my brother, Jerry, and to the harmless victims (Sara, Taylor, Lydia, Gaby and Owen) who were left in the wake of my nerd comment. You see, Jerry is not a nerd. He wears glasses and really, truly enjoys books about the universe, physics and engineering. He also is part of a men's barbershop group and likes to sing show tunes around the house. But these facts aside, he is not a nerd. One only needs to go back to the early '90's to know just how super-cool Jerry is/was. Strutting around CCHS in his white jeans and penny loafers (or was it deck shoes?), and riding his skateboard on the weekends with Andy Arnold, Jerry personified cool. And I don't need to remind anyone of just who was voted King of Hearts circa 1990...that's right, Jerry L. Kilgore. So, family and friends, if you ever find yourself thinking, "Man, I wish I could talk to someone who is REALLY radical and totally cool," I would recommend you call Jerry.
