A lesson I learned from my dear ol’ Pappy: you give people a warning before you shoot them. It may just be precisely what G-d had in mind…

My dear bourbon sippin’ Pappy fired his .45 caliber Army pistol, shattering the still, late-night air. About 20 minutes later he did it again. I didn’t know what he was aiming to shoot. Without a moon there was nothing much … Continue reading

I remember the first time I had sex – I still have the receipt…. Don’t laugh, after the Strauss-Kahn and Diallo fiasco in the Sofitel, sex with strangers may require proof of consensus…. Then again, sanity could return…

The series of events and twists of fate that may hopefully return some sanity and fairness to men’s lives were launched on the sunny morning of May 14th of this year in a $3,000 a night room of the Sofitel … Continue reading

Diana was a victim of Afghanistan. Today we are all victims of wars fought by the young so the old can still profit from the blood of the dead, the dying and the wounded souls who come home lost…
