A teacher for the government by day, I ply my wares at night on my laptop, where I'm cranking out silly blog posts, socio-political commentary, poetry, short stories and novels at an excessive rate. If I was driving, I'd have been pulled over by now. Meanwhile, I have multiple novel projects in the works, all in various stages of development: some mostly done and some still in the idea stage, nothing more than a thought.

Outside of that, I'm a rampant philanthropist at the

Haze was right next to Damien, balls out running, and the non-athlete was keeping up pretty good, considering how out of shape he had to be and the fact that his broken nose couldn’t be helping his breathing. He wheezed and cursed under his breath as they dodged pallets of concrete, scooted between vehicles and tried to blend in to the wave of blue coveralls that washed across the lot. It was g...

The Sober Truth by Lance Dodes
“Any substantive conversation about treatment in this country must reckon with the toll levied when a culture encourages one approach to the exclusion of all others, especially when that culture limits the treatment options for suffering people, ignores advances in understanding addiction, and excludes and even shames the great majority of people who fail in the sanctioned approach.”

This book was not what I was expecting, and frankly speaking I'm not going to finish it. Not because it's poorly written - it's not bad in its own way. Not because it's offensive or anything else that you can probably think of. Not even because this ...more

Not a whole lot to say as this was a biography. One superb thing, however, was that so much of the book is based on Franklin's own letters, including a great deal of quotes from said letters, which give the book a tremendous amount of credibility. So ...more

“I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause - but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; it's a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if they're not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If they're preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they can't be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism."

[Interview with Ron Powers (Chicago Sun Times) for Playboy, 1973]”
