The first thing Norman tells us is that we'll never believe his real name: Stormin Normin Leslie Egbert esquire Tabaras Egbert, he says. He double checks the spelling we've typed into our phone. "Yep, that's it," says the talkative 78-year-old man who wears tattered shoes scarred with holes and a hat that reads: "Alaska Go Kiss a Moose." Do you see what else the hat says? He asks. He has scrawled "and my ass" just above the hat's brim. Norman was born in New Jersey in 1939 by candlelight and in a hurricane, he says. He enlisted in the Army in 1952, served for 30 years and then moved to Colorado --leaving in 1996 "when the altitude got to me," he said. Now he lives in Anchorage. He has mesothelioma, he says, the cancer lines his tissues. He refused chemo. He sleeps outside in the summer, next to the veteran's memorial on I Street. He's guarding it, he says. #questival
