As a personal joke I call him Simon Templar, after the great Leslie Charteris figure monikered "The Saint". The Saint was a swashbuckler trapped in the twentieth century who, luckily for us, still found no shortage of/…
I'm no WWI expert or buff. My knowledge of it is cursory. I never really understood its origins and my interest is minimal. But if I had to vote for the shittiest war of all/…
Hello everyone, Jacob Jerusalem here to tell you all about the story catching like fire across the country. Some call it crazy and some call it as real as the sun. But I'm here to get to the bottom of it and bring you the truth! These/…
Been quite a while since I watched 2007's "Elite Squad" set in the notorious slums of Rio De Janeiro. I was ambivalent when I put it in my queue but after watching the epic "City of God" set in/…
I don't usually post whole stories but this one really struck me. Yes, I'm still complainng about all our useless and destructive 21st century wars. I'm sure that's considered passe by now but I wonder: will that sentiment hold true when the final bill comes due? Precious few know how high… Read full post »
"Did you find another one?"
"Yes! Yes! Dropped him right into the Maze!"
"Oh, goody! Let's go watch. It never gets old no matter how many souls we snatch."
Unseen and unknown,/…
It had been five years since she and the family had moved to the Bay area. Like all the previous moves she fed off the change as a fresh distraction and energy boost. She would marvel on endlessly to anyone who would listen of the exciting new/…
"Waiting and Wondering." Charlie spoke as if those were two ominous gods of doom and dread. These eyeless and earless overlords neither saw nor heard an ounce of the human misery they engendered. They crushed humanity as to their unfeeling/…
Reaching the other side I found travelers to and fro. They were on my path but was I on… Read full post »
So it had happened. While the scientists studied the science there were precious few studying the truth. The emotional dissonance of the planet had grown so great it caused a shifting of the axis. This had come as a surprise due to a panicked movement to/…
"I hate you! I hate you with every fiber of my being. I can't believe what you've done to your life. What's wrong with you? What kind of person gets in a mess like this?
"I've had it with you. You're nothing but a goddam liar./…
The sign said: "DON'T FEED THE CAT"
"Oh, my God! Why is that cat in a cage? Somebody needs to feed him!" she cried.
"This is your first time in town. Nobody feeds the cat," he explained.
"Nobody?? But he's completely helpless in there."
"Must be his own/…
There's a certain shade that the Japanese maple leaf reaches in the Fall that has to be my favorite color. It doesn't even seem real. It's a vibrant red-purple that I cannot describe but know it when I see it. So that gave me the impetus of delving/…
It's the light that I think of. It seems there was a different light in the early Sixties during the Kennedy presidency. I only know that time from photographs but that's what sticks out to me, like it's an endless Spring day. You can literally see the optimism. The Sixties/…
"Who are you? The end of the world?"
Guess I've heard that question one too many times because it seems to be coming true. I couldn't make it out of bed this morning. The pull to stay in was too great. Why get up? Why get out? Why even breathe?/…
I was crouching by a river contemplating the infinity of a single leaf when I realized I no longer knew the year or the day. It could be any year, any day, any time. None of it mattered. These waters were timeless waters, I slipped and fell into the universe./…
I bought this just for my quest.
Motor racing, in a sense, is the ultimate sport. Not only is physical skill required but also ingenuity and creativity. You can be the greatest marathoner in the world but you'd still be/…
Dallas, naturally, is too far south for the famed Northern Lights so we have to make do with making our own: The Dallas Aurora Art Show. Apparently it's been going on since 2010 but this year's was the first I'd heard of it. (Living hand/…

the nursing home and many homes are gone now.
It's funny. Had I stored a mountain of explosive fertilizer in my back yard and it caught on fire and exploded killing both my neighbors and firemen who/…
Putting aside the sheer outrage of stagnating wages, I ask you: what's wrong with this graph? Were I to ask Obama and his supporters the answer is obvious: we need to spend more money on healthcare. Why? Because that's the only "realistic" answer. If only someone would tell reality that!/…
Another day of boring data at NSA headquarters. Even tracking your wife and girlfriend can get old after a while. Soon, one starts to wonder how relevant one actually is. But then again, relevancy is in the eye of the beholder.
"Find me five people and shoot them!"
Sometimes it pays to be a blogger at Open Salon. After all, who else could browbeat their way in to interview the perpetrators of a sensational murder reported around the world? Naturally there was resistance at first, but after flashing/…
