I’m Dreaming of a Write Christmas

My brothers and I have decided to give each other only writing for Christmas, our own that is: stories, jokes, poetry, liner notes, whatever. So today, I spent about two hours writing a story.  The time just sped by.  I didn't even notice it ...

Judge not, lest ye end up having the best meal of your trip in McDonald’s

It’s fascinating.  Most of pre...

Small is the new big–How Orange is the New Black tells the truth
