John ôBirdmanö Bryant
Oct 26, 1943 - Feb 26, 2009

John Demarest Bryant was born October 26, 1943 in Washington DC, the
son of Lyle C. Bryant and Nola I. Wingo.

After graduating from Columbia Military Academy, Columbia, TN in 1961
and (after first attending Antioch College, Yellow Springs, OH)
American University, Wash DC (BA in Math) in 1968, he and his wife
moved to San Francisco, CA, where he completed the manuscript ôSystems
Theory and Scientific Philosophyö, and found a publisher for it.
Moving back to the East Coast, John delved into commodities trading in
and around Philadelphia, PA. He re-found his niche as a writer just
before moving to the Tampa Bay area in Dec of 1995.

He was the creator of the website ö http://www.thebirdman.org ö and
originator of the weekly (by subscription only) newsletter called the
Birdmanĺs Weekly Letter (now discontinued).

He also wrote approx. 40 books, from the ôEverything You Wanted to
Know ůö (Mortal Words) series to ôBetter than Shakespeareö, a rewrite
of the major Shakespearean sonnets.

He assembled a Libertarian Cartoon book, with original cartoons, many
of which appeared originally in Instauration and other magazines of
the alternative press.

Thanks. He was a good, honorable man. Only one serious flaw, in my eyes. Crazy carpenter skills. Didn't
graduate from high school, but made sure that he instilled in me a serious work ethic. He served in WWII,
reporting to Pearl Harbor on Dec. 9, 1941. Retired as head of
maintainance of the Vista school district. I'll miss him.

He moved to Oklahoma last year, to the tiny town where he was born and raised. So we had to go back there
for the services and burial. Interesting to spend some time on the edge of civilization.

My father is from Oklahoma as well, raised on a farm near Rush Springs
during the Depression. I've spent some time there as well; there's
something mystical and primal about a place where the wind is always
howling over the plains.

Thanks

Thanks. *He was a good, honorable man. *Only one serious flaw, in my eyes.
*Crazy carpenter skills. *Didn't
graduate from high school, but made sure that he instilled in me a serious
work ethic. *He served in WWII,
reporting to Pearl Harbor on Dec. 9, 1941. *Retired as head of
maintainance of the Vista school district. *I'll miss him.

He moved to Oklahoma last year, to the tiny town where he was born and
raised. *So we had to go back there
for the services and burial. *Interesting to spend some time on the edge of
civilization.


My father is from Oklahoma as well, raised on a farm near Rush Springs
during the Depression.


For my Mom and Dad it was Chelsea, up by Claremore. Population 2000,
probably a quarter of them related to me in some way. I spend some time
there every other summer until I was 16...riding horses, shooting
pistols with my cousins (largely at snakes)... The most humid place
I've ever been.

I've spent some time there as well; there's
something mystical and primal about a place where the wind is always
howling over the plains.


Ha! Speaking of "Oklahoma" on the drive back to Tulsa for our flight
home, we found THE "Surrey With the Fringe on Top" in Claremore. Funny!

The Oklahoma theme continues...I had to do some research on Friday on
Gloria Grahame and her botched plastic surgery, so I watched her sing
one of her tunes from "Oklahoma" to note how she enunciated the words
with cotton stuffed under her upper lip.

I do remember watching a remastered print of "Oklahoma" a few years
ago and was utterly amazed at the picture quality. But I digress.
