Jeffrey Carl Jefferis is a thirty-year-old freedom fighter. He has been pushing the envelope of word power for so long that his fingers are permanently stuck to the sealing glue. His wife discovered the cure for polio.

His personality, much like his writing, perhaps, is awkwardly predictable. Like the part in the Sci-Fi movie when the astronauts have to exit the ship in space suits to check for damage and one of them doesn't make it back. Or the part in a comedy about a funeral when the casket falls over and spills out the corpse.

He believes that a society should be judged on the corniness of its local car commercials, the cornier the better, and not by the people who remember the events of their lives relative to that year's American Idol winner.

He's also not a freedom fighter, or married.
