Kent Thompson, after some hasty paperwork, was declared a native of Norman, Oklahoma. The Sooner authorities eventually convinced him to leave and only visit the former at Winter holidays. With Indian Territory no longer a haven, he followed a good woman East, as circumstances and the era encouraged (ca. mid-1990s). She later fled the country to experience a more authentic life in Oaxaca – apparently succeeding. Thompson followed a flawlessly dull stretch in journal publishing with stressful, better-compensated gigs in online publishing then to digital media Babylon by Bits. He now trolls the area performance halls and corporate remnants for interesting but less well-compensated video production, postproduction, and publishing. Letters of Marque productions (& LoM on YouTube) began around 2005 as a sideline that fit well with job skill trends and now has a federal EIN number and business license with City Hall.
