The Road to Perdition

Posted by:

As we’re approaching the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it seems as if all the media outlets over here in the States are gearing up for full saturation mode. That’s only natural, given the human penchant to observe the passage of time in rounded numbers–and necessary, in my humble view. As a student of history, I’m all too aware of another human penchant to not learn from its lessons, which is why we keep making the ...

Sunrise, Sunset

Posted by:

I never used to consider myself an especially sentimental person. Heck, even the wedding scene from Fiddler on the Roof wasn’t enough to get me choked up–but that was before I had a couple of kids of my own. Nowadays, I find myself blubbering at the least provocation. Daughter goes off to her first day of preschool? Cry myself silly. Son gets too big for that set of yellow duckie pajamas?

Let’s Roll

Posted by:

Blog roll, that is. I’ve added a few outside links to the site–most of them author hangouts, with a few buddy sites thrown in for good measure. They’re guaranteed fun for everyone, so check ’em out if you get the chance.

The list is pretty basic now, but I’m sure it’ll grow over time. If anybody has any cool sites to add, I’m like totally game, dude! Drop me a line or leave a comment, and we’ll ...
