The first time that Adam Sterling was in charge of organizing anything was his freshman year of college, when he sent a busload of underage students down to Tijuana, where they could drink legally.

The site’s Last Changes page makes it easy to see what he’s written – just look for anything by his online pseudonym, Thors Pavoni.
