    People Want To Know Why I'm Not Insane.

    I have every right to go nuts. Bad childhood, bad parents, even a genetic disposition. But it just seems too easy. I may be a bit crazy but I'm not insane...legally.... I just think those who are insane can't handle the real world so they have to make their own. I'm not talking...

    I've Always Been Crazy

    There is an old C&W song by Waylon Jennings with the refrain of: "I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane". It is sort of a life motto of mine!
