    Jim Guinn Sr. obituary from the HET South Texas Chapter newsletter

    Just got the news from his son that USMB veteran Jim Guinn "Impenitent"
    passed away last October, leaving behind a daughter and a Veteran son with grandkids.
    And a host of poetry and songs mocking rightwing politics from an old
    School Democrat perspective (including a Musical on Mitt Romney
    and a poem about Obama that got him banned off a website or two).

    I had started trying to edit Jim's work on a blog
    www.jimguinn.com
    www.jimguinn.net
    but didn't get very far.

    He has more work, and has gotten booted off more political forums and in trouble with more
    mods and websites than I could ever claim as a fellow patron of the art of political parody.

    If anyone has links to his threads, posts or messages you would like to add here,
    please join in this tribute to our good friend "Impenitent" I was very fortunate to know
    and share our love of writing in the short time our lives crossed paths.

    Special thanks to USMB for making that window possible
    that shed light and laughter in some very unfunny areas of politics.
    Will truly miss my friend and his delightful stories songs and poems.

    With love and respect, and
    Hats off to Jim!

    Emily Nghiem

    RIP Jim.

    They ran you around here, banned you more than once for being me and yet you remained the gentleman throughout.

    Even now I am more thankful I stood up to them for you.

    He made me laugh a lot, his games with music lyrics and shifting them to usmb or left/right.

    We were political opposites all they way, but he had a good heart and that's really what counts in the end. He wasn't into the game even if he was drawn into it.

    Sorry to hear.
    We used to call him Impertinent in the heat of battle. He didn't mind. I liked him...
