Yesterday, I posted a blog bit in which I reviewed and graded an Amazon.com reviewer: Five Stars For The Girl In Wyoming!
So, today, I thought it might be fun to post a blog bit in which other folks review and grade ME. Following are genuine, authentic quotes -- things that people have said to me, or about me, over the decades. There's something here for everyone who likes me... and hates me. Ha! I hope you enjoy reading the praise and the condemnation that follows:

STEPHEN T. McCARTHY
starring Stephen T. McCarthy
Pretty girls with painted eyes, bearing boysenberry pies; Lovely maidens in scanty black dresses who don't spend hours preparing their tresses; Gorgeous, wealthy widows who lie awake and sigh, and who wouldn't mind keeping a man such as I.
Average grade of STEPHEN T. McCARTHY is 3 out of a possible 5 Stars based on the following 30+1 reviews:
It's a boy!

Stephen, your drawings were bad.
~ Steve K., schoolmate - 1974
I think you're a creative genius.

Best boy I ever had.
~ George, Stephen's dog - 1967 to 1981
I heard about the probability of your committing suicide before twenty-four. ...I wanted to know you. I wanted to get a little crack as to what was swarming in your mind -- unlock it. I thought you were beautiful.
~ Terrill M., friend - 1982
A man aware of the universe he creates.
~ Dan K., friend - 1984
One hell of a good human being (for an Irish filly-wagget).

Have you noticed how passionate you get about things? ...almost obsessed? ...I will diagnose you as having obsessive-compulsive tendencies.
~ Dr. Amy E., psychologist - 1989
You sweet ol' bilge rat!
~ Kathleen M., friend - circa 1990
A formerly intense individual. It seems you are a far cry from that Stephen T. McCarthy who objected to drinking like a gentleman in Boston. But, hey, we are all different Stephen T. McCarthys now, ain't we?
~ Mike L., ex-drinking buddy - 1993
A son who not only improves the family character, but who IS the family character.
~ Shirley M., Stephen's Mother - 1994
You cowboy S.O.B.
~ Lonnie M., friend - 1996
Stephen, who's going to ask me all those thought-provoking questions when you're gone? ...Call me!
~ Lorna, former coworker - 1996
Stephen is cool and nice. ...Thanks personally for letting me, Shelby and Leanne play around your house.
~ Sarah, 12-year-old neighbor - 2004
Just because McCarthy can edit and criticize doesn't mean he can comprehend or spell moron.
~ Doc S., Amazon.com reviewer - 2004
I'd like you... you are weird.
~ Tracey F., Amazon.com reviewer - 2005
Stephen, I miss you in my life. I almost feel like I gave my soul away.
~ Dr. Amy E., psychologist - 2007
Stephen, the difficulty I’m experiencing is that you … believe, so strongly, that you know the “real truth”, that an open discussion doesn’t seem possible or pleasant. Given that, I’m not going to defend or explain my opinions and beliefs to you.
~ Dr. Amy E., psychologist - 2008
There's only two people who ever got me to crack open a Bible, and you're one of them.
~ SigToo, friend - 2008
In a battle, you'd be the first guy I'd pick for my team, because you are really loyal to your friends, and you NEVER give up.
~ Sheboyganboy Six, friend - 2009
The Lord used you more than just a little bit to bring me back into the fold of fellowship with Him.
~ David W. P., friend - 2010
You've got classy, upscale anger. The kind that gets people kicked out of 5-star dive bars.

Leftist says what?

Damn, you are some kind of fun to read. Lol
~ WI1H, Internet commenter - 2016
Rolly... WTF is happening in this conversation?? :)) This D-FensDogG guy is either a fucking genius comedian or the most obvious shill of all time.
~ It Is Not Paranoia, Internet commenter - 2016
Your life has been full of bad choices, huh? Southern white trash with no education. Do you flip burgers, make meth, or did you enlist?
~ Kyler P., Internet commenter - 2017
You are a guru.

The King of hostility and actual name-calling.
~ Andrew Leon, Internet Idiot - 2017
