The official answer to Who Is Gwilym McGrew? II:
You are getting lazy. Why do I have to do the work for you? My life and “bio” is entirely online. My work history, the few contributions I have made, the articles I have reprinted for feminists, MASS fisherman, etc. My life is an open book. If you want to know about me do what you suggest others do, google me. It is all there.
Geez man, my life is out there for all to see. Do some work if you want to know about me. Trust me, you will just find a gray haired old fat guy though.
I love how you make my efforts seem conspiratorial. Very funny. No, I was not on the grassy knoll either. You said the following below and my comments/reaction are in ALL CAPS below as well:
“So Gwilym McGrew is a bit less illusory now.” [JOHN, WHEN WAS I ILLUSORY OR DECEPTIVE (AS THE DICTIONARY DEFINES ILLOSORY) ? YOU MADE A NOTE OF MY REPRINT OF AN EDITORIAL IN THE GLOUCESTER TIMES. YOU WONDERED WHO I WAS. I FOUND THIS POST AND WROTE TO YOU “Gwilym here……..Glad to see you found me John. If you have a question feel free to reach me directly. No problem.” NOW HOW IS THAT ILLUSORY. I INVITED YOU TO CONTACT ME IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ME? I THEN TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK ABOUT HOW OBAMA THROUGH NOAA IS IMPLEMENTING “CATCH SHARES” NATIONWIDE AND HOW YOUR COASTAL TOWNS ARE NEGATIVELY IMPACTED. HEY, YOU HAVE A BLOG, WHAT A GREAT WAY TO SPEAK DIRECTLY TO A “communication professor at Boston University and media analyst” AND DRAW HIS ATTENTION TO THIS ISSUE. I ALSO TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENSURE YOU AND YOUR READERS WERE AWARE OF KERRY’S INADEQUATE ACTION ON THIS ISSUE. NORMALLY WHEN SOMEONE LIKE MYSELF HAS A POINT OF VIEW IT IS NICE TO INFORM A “communication professor at Boston University and media analyst” OF THAT POINT OF VIEW IN HOPES OF PUTTING THIS ON THEIR RADAR SHOULD THEY WISH TO DIG INTO IT MORE. SO, “ILLUSORY,” I THINK NOT. AGAIN, MY LIFE AND ACTIONS ARE AN OPEN BOOK (GOOGLE).]
“But plug “Gwilym McGrew” into the Googletron and you still get this.” [YES AND PLUG “John Carroll” INTO GOOGLE AND YOU FIND HIS NAME IS VERY COMMON. PERSONALLY, I LIKE MY DISTINCT NAME. AT LEAST NOONE CAN CONFUSE ME WITH THIS GUY http://www.clickorlando.com/news/24275503/detail.html
“Regardless. Bio, please, Gwilym” [WHEN I RETIRED FROM HOLLYWOOD I STOPPED UPDATING A BIO. A BIO HAS GREAT ATTRACTION WHEN LOOKING FOR A JOB OR TRYING TO GET PRESS OR TO GIVE TO SOMEONE READING AN INTRODUCTION ABOUT YOU BEFORE YOU GIVE A SPEECH. BUT, ALAS, I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A JOB, DON’T SEEK OUT PRESS, AND AM NOT SCHEDULED TO GIVE A SPEECH. HOWEVER, IF YOU CAN GATHER A LEAST 100 STUDENTS AT YOUR COLLEGE TO LISTEN TO ME FOR 45 MINUTES I WILL FLY ON MY DIME TO SPEAK ABOUT CATCH SHARES. THE BOSTON GLOBE IS NOT DOING A GREAT JOB INFORMING BOSTON CITIZENS ON THIS ISSUE. MAYBE I CAN BRING A FEW LOCAL FISHERMAN TO SPEAK WITH ME TO EDUCATE THE CROWD. SO, IF YOU WISH TO INTRODUCE ME THEN I WILL WRITE A BIO FOR YOU. SO, I DO NOT HAVE A WRITTEN FORMAL “BIO” ANYMORE, BUT ANYONE CAN FIND ALL THAT WOULD NORMALLY BE IN A BIO BY GOOGLING ME AS YOU SUGGEST.
SO, NO ILLUSION, DECEIT, ETC. I AM OUT THERE FOR ALL TO SEE.
MY GUESS IS IN ANOTHER MONTH OR FOUR YOUR GOOGLE SEARCH WILL YIELD SOME FRESH RESULTS. THERE JOHN, DOES THAT HELP YOU CREATE THE ILLUSIONARY TEASE FOR YOUR READERS?
LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE THE STUDENTS READY FOR MY PRESENTATION ON CATCH SHARES.
FORGIVE ANY SPELLING ERRORS. I HATE TO PROOF COPY. GWILYM
I officially forgive your spelling errors, Gwilym. And I’m looking into getting 100 Terriers together to hear you speak.
