The Right Kind of Crazy

Madness. It reigned over and rained on this city just weeks before we landed this weekend at McCarran International airport. Las Vegas–affectionately dubbed “sin-city”–was shaken to its core when sin made its ugliest darkside known. A thoroughly broken man lit up this city of lights with a semi-automatic weapon, a bump stock and a cache […]

Spent Shells

Ethiopian farmers find them all the time. Spent shells. Bomb casings from past wars and conflicts litter their fields like plastic water bottles on a busy roadside. This left-over battle waste must be cleared or it serves as a hazard to the farmer’s meager equipment. Question is, “What do you do with spent shells?” These […]

At the end of WWI the US Naval Torpedo Factory on the waterfront in Arlington, Virginia was built and put into service. The idea was to prepare in case of future world conflicts. The powerful and terrifying weapons built […]

Absolutely calm and still, absent of the afternoon breeze, our lake is a polished mirror with perfect reflections of the large oaks, beautiful houses and thick summer clouds that create its frame.

The Intellectual Laziness Of The Easy Answer

A political season for me is on par with buying a used car or getting a root canal. They are all necessary but unavoidable evils. And each is a genuine pain in the…well, you know.
