it just feels good to rant and rave and tilt at windmills, even if it
doesn't accomplish anything. Occasionally, doing so has the side benefit
of actually doing some good, or at least causing others to do a bit of
thinking that might not otherwise have occurred. Either way, it's a catharsis

People Think We've Lost Our Minds - Inspired by our
decision to relocate to Texas from Marvelous Marin County, California.
Just another Lottery - Did
you ever stop to think about just how ineffective the 'death penalty'
has become? I'm proposing a solution...
God Hates Mobile Homes - Just
my opinion, but I think if I were omnipotent and had to look down at
all these nasty little "mobile monstrosities" I might do a
little creative housekeeping myself.
Roadkill on the Information Superhighway
- A true story on the hazards of the Internet and its
impact on office politics. Originally published in Lies Magazine.
Fear and Loathing at 35,000 Feet - Another
true story based on a less than ideal coast-to-coast flight.
Death and the Golden Gate - Maybe
it's just me, but I think diving boards on the Golden Gate Bridge are
a really good idea. Originally published around Thanksgiving, 1994.
The Sharks are Circling - A
true story of personal experience with the "Gestapo-based"
child support system in California. Ever feel like you're being screwed
by 'the system'? If so, you just might appreciate this.
Don't Look Now, But You're Being Monitored
- A true story also. Ever seen a Monitor lizard up close
- in your kitchen?
Pepper Spray or a Gun? - I
couldn't believe how complicated this entire process was, so I just
had to write about it.
A Walled City - Have you
ever noticed how some people just think they're a lot better
than the rest of us? This was based on just such an observation of a
certain Marin County community.
