Gizmo and Leon were tweekers. I've heard the term used to describe coke users, but a true tweeker is a speed freak. Crank, crystal, ice, glass, dizzle, hillbilly crack- all tweekend long. A 'high speed chicken feed' connoiseur will tell you "coke is talk, crank is…Continue

This is the latest in a series of stories about my late son. It turns out that OS is a decent place to grieve.
My son was born a few blocks from the White House, in a hospital that closed years ago. He always had a taste for politics, though the pagentry appealed to him far more than the issues did.
When he was four years old and we weren't local to the…
She was fifteen and pregnant when I met her.
She was the granddaughter of the couple next door. They lived in the cottage and took care of the farm that my dad owned. The entire family would gather there on Sundays and I’d go over and listen and eat with them. Wonder bread with gravy and turkey or meatloaf, mashed potatoes. There was always coffee and Coke and lots of cigarette smoke at the table. The men mostly talked about cars and equipment and maybe about people they knew and what…Continue

No matter who gets elected in November – no matter who makes the laws – no matter what religious zealots say; there is no one on the face of this earth, or any other earth, who will ever be able to regulate with whom a person falls in love.
Same-sex people, people from different races, people of different religions, young and old, old and young, even a woman and a man – folks are going to fall in love and enter into some sort of relationship. You cannot regulate love – no matter how…Continue

Don't you sometimes wish people came with a user manual? Something to help you understand them better, know what makes them tick? Well, since I'm a technical writer, I've written my own user manual, with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

There is a reason I don't use my real last name in my posts. There are people I don't trust and people I don't feel should read about my deepest, darkest secrets. I have chosen some friends and family and I do let them know when I have a new post up. I know they care and have been supportive thus far.
It's not easy to put myself out there like this, using my name or not. Those who know anything about me would figure out I'm the author anyway. These things I write about - I've kept…Continue
This is the most important blog entry....to me...that I have ever written and I have decided to move it here for safe keeping rather than the other site. Maybe this place is becoming home after all.
Today, Feb. 10,2010, at five in the afternoon as his mother and I made our way to Memphis to catch the first flight out in the morning, Our Son Richard passed away.

[After 468 days in a row roaming from one backwater motel room to another, ex-assassin Goupil has not reappeared on the Federal radar. But while he has not been captured, outside of that in no sense is he free. Bottomless boredom and depressed isolation have eroded his mind, robbing him of his will to live. Still, he faintly fights, giving up his vodka to prevent further breeches of security like the night he stumbled outside naked.]…
My high school reunion is in about three weeks. I have been unable to make a decision as to whether or not I should even bother going. Then I got the invitation in the mail. I have to pre-pay $50.00 to see the people who tortured me? Seriously?
High school was hell. I wouldn't go back to those days if you paid me. It started out really great. I loved it. I had my friends from middle school and was making lots of new friends. All of my brothers had preceded me so the teachers knew my…Continue
The yellows have all reappeared for fall
after laboring away the summer
And dewy morning greets us all
the vine along does lumber
From deep within the woods below
wild sunflowers bow and wave
Helianthus shines almost aglow
tucked loosely in it's enclave…Continue

The argument for "PRIVATIZING" everything is apparent once again in rationalizations put forth during discussions about privatizing public parks. Of course the vulture capitalists put forth the same argument they use for getting their greedy hands on everything. "The private sector can do it…Continue
