The savage murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a Saudi consulate located in Turkey, followed by his dismemberment by bone saw, has generated worldwide horror and headlines, mostly centered on whether the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman (known as MBS for short), had directly ordered his killing.


The argument in the United States has split along moralistic and realisti...

“When she had asked him how he was able to kill two men with his bare hands, he had gone into asshole mode, telling her not to look a gift horse in the mouth.”
Brad Taylor, One Rough Man

“In my mind, the world is split neatly into two groups: meat-eaters and plant-eaters. Nothing is wrong with either one. Both are necessary. One contributes much, much more to society than the other. The other is necessary to protect the contribution. I’m a meat-eater. My existence allows the plant-eater to contribute. Some plant-eaters, living in a so-called civilized world, call me evil, but at the end of the day, when the bad man comes and the plant-eater’s praying for a miracle, I’m what shows up.”
Brad Taylor, One Rough Man

John Thanks for the add and Dewey kicks ass! Won your book, No Fortunate Son, through this site. Merry X-mas and peace to you and your family.


Samuel Can't wait for The Polaris Protocol, the "epic threat" of the story looks highly unique and asymmetric.


Bernard Cenney A fantastic writer! Inspired, accurate, engrossing, clever, and fun!One Rough Man
