I'm going to be honest, Richard: I thought he was suggesting he was
Robin Quivers (now ex-) boyfriend, especially with his phony ghetto-
speak, but that Mr. X, while black, wasn't ghetto. I think Eddie, in
his twisted imagination, is like a like of Jews who hate and fear
black people: he both avoids them as much as he can and fantasizes
that he's the toughest mother-fucker on the block. It's really pretty
pathetic.

At any rate, Richard, I like your idea better than any of the ones I
found on Wiki. But then, you realize that Eddie was playing a game.
Had I guessed what he claims he had in mind, though of course I
didn't guess at all, he'd have been able to switch to something else
(my point in using the Wiki list) and still assert that he has the
largest male member in Brooklyn. Which is true. Unfortunately, it's
on his neck.

I'm tempted to give Eddie's name and address to my friend over on
Eastern Parkway. He has a 94 y.o. Socialist mom who grew up in
Paterson with Allen Ginsberg's mother (of course I'm totally making
all this up, don't you know?), he hates right wingers with a passion
far fiercer than mine, and he is prone to getting himself into fist
fights, something I never do. From Eddie's photo, I think it would be
a reasonably good fight, except that my friend tends to use whatever
piece of wood, metal, etc., that he finds handy in his van as a
peacemaker. But I wouldn't want to see him do jail time over killing
or crippling a completely pathetic scum bucket like Eddie, and hence
I'll resist the temptation.

Besides, if Ed were physically dead, rather than just brain-dead,
this list would lose so much vital information about Stalinism, etc.
And it is, as we know, called Anti-Communist-teach, isn't it? :) I
know I joined in hopes that some day, a blowhard asshole living in
Park Slope, Brooklyn, would appear to enlighten us all about the
REALLY important aspects of teaching and learning mathematics.
