Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him on Twitter: "Amarillo! That's where I was born!" [1], "Speaking of odds, in an earlier post you posited my Virgo inclination. Turns out I’m Pisces with Tarus rising; Virgo is pretty much orthogonal to my chart" [2]. Full name, date, year and place (Potter county) from Texas, Birth Index. A speculative time of 10:30am gives Taurus rising.
