Anybody else notice how varied Xavier's interests are? His breadth of knowledge is damned wide, too.
Seriously. The guy's a trauma specialist nurse. He's a former sailor from the old navy. He's a bicyclist and a bicycle collector and enthusiast. He does saltwater fish. He raises and runs his dog. He's a fan and, from what I'm seeing, something of a student, of astronomy. He collects and shoots an impressive collection of firearms, old and new. He's a 2nd Amendment activist. He's a powerful advocate of CCW. He gives of his time to help when others are in need (such as going to help during the Katrina debacle). He writes well, which means he reads. He philosophizes. He does his own major home repair. He takes his responsibilities as a father and husband seriously. He also moderates at least one firearm discussion board.
I'm beginning to feel a little touch of inferiority, here.
