This is Dale E. Jones all right. But which one?

There are a lot of people with this name. There were nine Dale's in our Kansas City phone book (back when we had phone books) and two Dale E's. And one of them not only lives in our neighborhood, but he uses the same pharmacy. I'm glad he seems to be a law-abiding citizen, at least.

So here's a little information that may tell you if I'm the one you're looking for.
