  • Si annovera con orgoglio tra gli ebrei texani e svolge numerose altre attività, tra le quali il cantautore, umorista/satirista, giornalista e figura politica. Ha adottato da sempre il soprannome Kinky non perché abbia strane preferenze sessuali, ma perché lo chiamavano così da bambino, dati i simpatici riccioli (in inglese kinks=riccioli) che aveva. Come artista, si paragona inoltre ad una combinazione tra Will Rogers e Mark Twain. Nelle elezioni governative del Texas del 2006, è stato uno dei due candidati indipendenti e ha ricevuto il 12.6% dei voti, piazzandosi quarto su cinque candidati. (it)
