"...for I was rich, if not in money, in sunny hours and summer days, and spent them lavishly; nor do I regret that I did not waste more of them in the workshop or the teacher's desk." - Henry David Thoreau, Walden

(Did Nathaniel Hawthorne say, "I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air"? I don't know. If he did, I like that too. These old dead guys might have been on to something.)

Christopher tm Herdt is primarily a lunatic, although he has several moronic qualities. He hopes to one day create a farcicial fanatical religious sect as successful as the Rosicrucians. Failing that, he will simply buy a short bus and drive to Mexico.
Note: I got a full-size bus, and we drove it to Laredo, where we were turned away by the Mexican authorities.
