If you landed here by accident, I am Stu Bykofsky, a columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News. You are excused if you wish to leave. Please don't slam the door.
If you are here by choice - why? I've never mentioned my Website in print.
Maybe you're a lawyer. Maybe you're a process server. Maybe you're a headhunter. Maybe you're a stalker. Mr. Bandwidth, my Search Engine Guru, tells me maybe you are a fan who wants to learn more about me. (Get a life.)
I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia on May 17, 1937. Although Hindu, my parents raised me as a Sagittarius. After a brief education at a parochial school on a rubber plantation (where I learned to write checks that bounce), with World War II on the horizon, I was shipped to America where I was raised by wolves.
That would be Sam and Dora Wolf of Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn. I stayed there for several years before being shipped to another Wolf . . . Blitzer in Washington, D.C.
After a checkered academic career at Georgetown, where it was rapidly discovered I was not African-American and had no basketball talent, I got my first job, on Wall Street as a stock clerk (in a shoe store).
Believe it not, this led directly to my employment with the Daily News. The company attorney advises I say no more on this subject.
Naturally, the above is a pack of lies that I've posted for two reasons: 1) To illustrate you can't believe what you read on Websites, and 2) To prevent anyone from stealing my identity. (I wouldn't wish my identity on a warthog.)
The Website protects me from others creating mischief in my name. (I hope you don't feel frustrated.) I've created it and now I feel like a dog who chases cars and doesn't know what to do when he catches one.
Mr. Bandwidth recommends that I provide you with a list of my favorite links. My favorite are sausage, paper, cuff and golf. As to the Web kind, I believe you already have dozens of links that you don't use, so why should I add to the electronic clutter? If you want a ton of links, go visit Matt Drudge.
I'll just provide one, which takes you to my column in the Daily News. If you go to www.philly.com, then click on Daily News logo at top, then click on "columnists," my name (among others) will come up. Click on it and enjoy!
Finally, Mr. Bandwidth suggests I provide you with my email address. I don't mind providing it, as long as you understand that I am at w-o-r-k and I don't promise a reply.
