Just For the Record

Just in case anyone knows Mark Leifer, seen in the photos below, I'd like to go on record that he has today made numerous threats against my life. Since he claims to live in Zihuatanejo, I intend to report him to the proper authorities and I am also making this public statement in case anything should happen to my family or me.

Somehow I have not had the misfortune to meet him in person, or if I did he made no impression.

Apparently I made the mistake of "friending" this guy on Facebook recently (note to self: stop "friending" strangers), and last Friday after I posted an Elton John song on my "Wall" Mark Leifer posts a slur against gay people in reply. Of course I chastised him for making the comment. Next thing I know I'm receiving e-mails and "private messages" from him full of more gay slurs, insults and now threats. He is of course welcome to stop by if he wishes to see me in person, though I don't suffer fools lightly, but I can take care of myself. I've never in my life backed down to wannabe bullies, and I'm not about to start just for some senile old bigot. But since a threat against me may also bring harm or hardship to my family or our property, I am also taking proper measures to ensure our collective safety.

Since these photos are viewable by the public on Facebook, I reprint them here in case anyone recognizes him and can help me get an address for this person, local or otherwise, as well as any other helpful info to help me identify and locate him.

Sorry folks have to read this kind of stuff, but just like anywhere, apparently we have our share of senile old bigots who like to threaten folks, too.
