I've done what I could, what was in my reach. I had the luck to be offered a position from which I could help, and I had the foolhardiness to take it. I was bull-headed and belligerent because I'm not a nice person. I fought as hard for Black and Brown colleagues as I did for White, as hard for women and gays as for men and straights. I won more often than I lost, so I ended up retiring at the same grade I started at . It was worth it, I regret none of it, because it was the right thing to do. I'd do it all again, only harder and more viciously. I wish I could have done more, but all I can do now is tear strips off ignorant arseholes in shops and the street. Not that I'll stop doing that while I have breath, but it's not enough. It's never enough.

Snapper-up of unconsidered trifles, walker of paths less travelled by. Advocate-in-Ordinary to His Satanic Majesty.
