After being formed in the crucible of the great metropolis of Chicago, Robert Birnbaum moved to Boston in 1973 spurred a brief romantic interlude in Wellfleet, Cape Cod. He has come to eschew the soul- sucking, vampiric trappings of modernity —he does not fly,eat in fast food troughs, tweet, selfie or wear a sports team jerseys(though he is a hard-wired Cubs fan). He opines that he baseball cap is one of the United States’s greatest contributions to civilization. He opines that Don Winslow’s magnum opus crime story The Power of the Dog is a textbook analysis on the so-called War on Drugs. He has lived in the Boston area which he considers a cosmic psych test except for a brief interval is South Coastal New Hampshire .
