A Nice, Boring, Government Transition

Michael Lewis’ book, The Fifth Risk, gave me a peek behind the scenes in terms of the running of our government and what happens when a new administration takes over. About 4000 people need to be hired, 1200 of which need to be confirmed. Then of course there are the many background checks and security…

Stumbling Towards Self-Care

While playing around with different WordPress themes I noticed that some give a tagline option. As I transition from posting on Facebook to only posting on my blog, I’ve been trying to figure out: What’s the focus of this space? Why should anyone give a damn and stop by?  As I messed around with a…

Will We Get Up?

In 1987 Oral Roberts, a televangelist from Oklahoma told his followers that if he didn’t receive 8 million dollars in donations within 3 months, God was going to “call him home.” Ultimately, 9 million was raised and Roberts lived another twenty-two years.

Fucking-Feasance? Although I’m not a lawyer, Trump has clearly carried out all three types of failures like…

Can't Wait until People are just People Again

After 9-11, every plane in the sky became a potential weapon to me. “Is that plane supposed to be so close to the Empire State building? Is that normal elevation for a plane landing at La Guardia? Holy hell, is a terrorist crashing a jet onto I-78 or is a pilot just heading towards Newark…

Patriot

Patriot follows “the turbulent and complicated life of an intelligence officer, John Tavner, whose latest assignment is to prevent Iran from going nuclear. The assignment requires him to…
