Jerry Constantino:

Jerry Constantino is a former magazine publisher who lives in North Carolina, USA. He smiles a lot and sees the glass half-full and the world half-sane. Among the news media, books and magazines, the coffee shop and life in general, it is the unusual that most often catches his eye. He walks, he talks and he writes. He is not a cynic though he sometimes sounds like one. He believes in people, human nature, sun, stars, etc. He loves his family, all of 'em. And he loves life...it's just that it sometimes gets distorted through his glasses. He doesn't often refer to himself in the third person unless he is trying to pretend someone else is saying this.
