Well, I have finally decided to join the site after "lurking" for the last year, stopping by pretty much daily to catch up on the latest topics. My
real name is Tony and I live in the Seattle, Washington area. I am married and work as a Corrections Sergeant in a large metropolitan jail. I have
worked in corrections for the past 20 years.
My interests are many and varied. Relating to the subject matter on this site, I would say that the Paranormal, UFOs, theology/philosophy, and
political issues are my main focal points, though I have been known to read and follow threads from any forum that happens to catch my eye.
The number of discussion forums/groups I have been a part of on the internet I can literally count on one hand. And my common experience with those
other groups has been that the discussions usually devolve into wild accusations and name-calling (I no longer assocaite with any of them). That is
another reason I wanted to join ATS - not only does the content intrigue me, I have also been very impressed with the civility and decorum I have
found in the posts. That is such a breath of fresh air. Additionally, the members here demonstrate a level of insight and intelligence in the forums
which, quite frankly, I have found to be lacking anywhere else.
So, with that said, I just want to convey that I am very glad to be here and I look forward to many interesting discussions in the near future.
