Many Hats

I am not a man of many hats.
I'm not speaking metaphorically. I'm talking about hats, in all their literal, haberdasherial glory. Though I have acquired lots of hats, I am a disorganized flake and lose them all the time. Right now, I just have one. This is not many.   

I once had a job at a large company at which I was not permitted to wear my hats. My headgear ran afoul of the company's official Read more of this blog post »

Motivation (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 14, 2012 03:56PM
Description: This appeared in <i>Chess Life</i> about ten years ago. It was the first piece of fiction I ever sold. They gave me $150. I was ecstatic. In my humble opinion, I think it's pretty funny. Chess players especially should enjoy it, I hope. Thanks for reading. Hope you like it.

“I want an avowed atheist in the White House. When time comes to push that button, I want whoever's making the decision to understand that once it's pushed, it's over. Finito. They're not gonna have lunch with Jesus. Won't be deflowering 72 virgins on the great shag carpet of eternity, or reincarnated as a cow. I want someone making that decision who believes life on this Earth isn't just a dress rehearsal for something better -- but the only shot we get.”
