Looking up Hare’s Wikipedia bio, I see he claims an A.A. Degree. I am not familiar with “A.A.” degrees. BA, yes; MA, yes; Phd, yes; EE, yes; and a host more. But A.A.? I have been trying to decide whether that means “Associated Artist,” or barn painter; or if that refers American Apparel, where he was reportedly a cutter; or if Hare is describing his bra size.
Any could apply, but reading Hare’s Wikipedia bio I found this classic line. Copy and pasting from “Personal Life,” “Hare and his husband Beckie currently live in Rock Island and have two grown children, Amy and Louis.”
