Boxing great "Hurricane" Peter McNeeley once famously warned a recently de-incarcerated Iron Mike Tyson that he was going to “wrap him in a cocoon of horror” during the course of their upcoming bout.  McNeeley, renowned knockout victim to a bonafide who’s who list of professional pugilists (as in...
Ah yes, the Internet: where a nobody can become somebody, and a somebody can become somebody else.  Step right up, folks, leave your identity at the door and please help yourselves to the screen name of your choice.  WORLDSGREATESTREALTOR is already taken, but there are countless others to peruse...
