I saw the crazy guy inside the Capitol Rotunda with his tattoos, Daniel Boone cap and Viking horns and it were the horns that really caught my attention. The guy? He’s a looney-toon, 32-year-old actor from Phoenix. The horns? I guess symbols of white, male aggression, violence, supremacy. I am about 50% Scandinavian and while I have never known very much about my roots, I have mythologized what they are and therefore who I am, but, actually I’m thinking about the Scandinavia I hear about today — world’s happiest people, environment- ally aware, peace loving. Back to the horns. Symbols of savagery. I am the son of Gust. I guess that would make me a Gustafson even though I was told my name was Hanson before some ancestor changed it to what it is today for reasons never explained. While I love my long-deceased father, I actually like my baptism name better — child of God, brother and friend of Jesus; you know — Jesus, the Middle-Eastern, dark-skinned guy who is the wonderful window into the universal, inclusive, grace- filled Spirit of peace and love. Actually, I think my hornless father would have liked that. Probably my long-gone wooden- shoe wearing Dutch mother, too.
