Long before becoming Bay Area Rapid Transit’s chief spokesperson, Linton Johnson worked as a television reporter in St. Louis. In the late 90’s he was regularly seen dancing shirtless, with much fanfare, at the Complex.

I've neglected Google+ lately but after being inexplicably reprimanded by Facebook I figure it's time to diversify my social networking.

Facebook said I was sending friend requests to people I didn't know (harassing behavior) and made me go though a BS tutorial of their rules. I found out later they had done that to others that day.

How are you dividing your social networking time between Facebook and Google?
(10% Google/90% Facebook 90%)

I agree with Omar's observations. I don't post anything on Facebook any more, but I check in there to make comments on other people's posts from time to time.

Introduction
From AMERICAblog.com:

Chris Andoe is a New York based writer and seasoned activist. After meeting John Aravosis at a Chicago “StopDrLaura.com” protest in 2000, Chris was inspired to organize his own major demonstrations in St. Louis, his adopted hometown, which drew national attention. Since then, his activism has revolved around LGBT, affordable housing, and mass transit issues. 

While living in San Francisco, Andoe made headlines taking on the amorphous hacker group Anonymous for publishing nude photos of a Bay Area Rapid Transit spokesperson, saying “Puritanical shame-based tactics have no place in the capital of sexual liberation”, and he extensively covered the city’s jarring gentrification, from mass evictions to the nudity ban. 

Back in St. Louis Andoe’s hosted public events on the subway and elsewhere as “The Emperor” and writes the Tales from the Emperor column for Vital Voice Magazine. Always in the fray, Andoe’s been interviewed by NPR, CBS, and has been quoted from CNN to The St. Louis Post Dispatch. His upcoming book of short stories, Delusions of Grandeur, is expected out early next year.

From Vital VOICE Magazine: 

"The Emperor of St. Louis" Chris Andoe writes his Tales from the Emperor column for Vital VOICE Magazine. Andoe recently moved from the Bay Area to New York to finish his book Delusions of Grandeur, but frequently returns to St. Louis to hold court, host events and tell stories. Other interests include politics, climbing through abandoned buildings and knocking wigs back.
