Hello. Dr. Odd here. I met Butler back when I was visiting U of I when we were at college. He was kinda crazy back then. Now we have been working together for a few years and we pretty much eat lunch every day and talk about what pisses us off. He is a great dude and a solid friend. You can drop him a line here.
