Jason Pyrz was born into the unfortunate situation of having a family name with no true vowels. Having lived most of his early childhood in the near southwest suburbs of Chicago, directly under the approach to Midway Airport, nothing exciting really happened to him with the exception of the time he got to shake Mr. T’s hand on a school field trip to a movie set. Jason attended Loyola University Chicago, where he was a member of the Men’s Volleyball Team and entered the record books as the first bench warmer in team history. Since graduating he has lived in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Orange County, and has worked as a webmaster, a project manager, and a trial attorney. Jason currently resides in Naperville, IL with his wife, Sue, and ...more

Congratulations for making it past the worst blog post title in history. Well, perhaps not the worst, that would probably be something along the lines of - no, sorry, not going there. Anyway, it's at least a runner-up for least creative blog post title. However, this blog post is actually about writing. Writing being what I am doing right now.

“We shall be better and braver and less helpless if we think that we ought to inquire than we should have been if we indulged in the idle fancy that there was no knowing and no use in seeking to know what we do not know.”
Mark Adams, Meet Me in Atlantis: My Obsessive Quest to Find the Sunken City

“Mormonism was like junk food: It was American to the core and it looked all right, but it wasn't until after you had swallowed some that you felt strange. I”

“She laughed loudly. It sounded to her husband like someone pushing a witch in a barrel over a waterfall. He pictured his wife in a barrel falling into very deep water, and this cheered him up a bit.”
John Connolly, The Gates

Porter Fox
“Politicians, federal agents, pundits, and most Americans focus on the line with Mexico, even though its northern cousin is more than twice its length and many times more porous. The only known terrorists to cross overland into the US came from the north. Fifty-six billion dollars in smuggled drugs and ten thousand illegal aliens cross the US-Canada border every year. Two thousand agents watch the line. Nine times that number patrol the southern boundary. According to a 2010 Congressional Research Service report, US Customs and Border Protection maintains “operational control” over just sixty-nine miles of the northern border.”
Porter Fox, Northland: A 4,000-Mile Journey Along America's Forgotten Border

“I fell into the temporary role of spokesman for America, trying to answer questions as best I could: Why do Americans eat so much processed food? Why do they get so little vacation time? (Everyone in our group had more or less taken off the last month of summer.) Why do they love guns? Having been placed in this situation frequently during my travels, I blamed everything on the Republicans, which always satisfies Europeans.”
