Oh, yes of course, Ishmael! I had forgotten you linked that very Twitter thread. I actually owe you a debt of gratitude. Your link is what prompted me to reach out to Peter and catch up with him after way too many years.

Jesus, I had such a huge crush on him when I was young. A classic case of hero worship, you know. I wasn’t alone, of course. Peter was (and is) a very inspirational leader.
