Definition: Scottish-obviously, Irish-assuredly, Insane -probably,
**** **ENTERTAINING---DEFINITELY! ******
A Celt of high regard with a warped humor living on the "lunatic fringe"
(somewhere in the vicinity of Fort Worth, TX, USA).

But it is not all craziness.
Red is also devoting time to the education of America's youth by doing as many school programs as possible,
teaching kids about their Scottish and Irish roots, the folk tales and legends, the battles, history and geography,
politics, the involvement of the Celts in America and disguising it as entertainment. Believe me, it works!
