Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

This is a short post with some links and it’s prompted by the unprecedented run on guns and ammo. Disclaimer: Nothing I say here is meant as definitive advice on the subject of guns, gun handling, gun shooting, etc. Do … Continue reading
This is a very short post with a link to a lot of information. Whether you are pro-gun, anti-gun, or indifferent; whether you live in the US or elsewhere, there’s lots of information about active shooters situations here: Active Killer … Continue reading
Not always, but when there’s a shooting I often get a few emails asking what we should do about mass shootings (or school shootings, or any shooting). In modern vernacular, this would labeled as micro-aggression because I know 1) no … Continue reading
Some general thoughts on guns and stuff; thinking about the kind of stuff that gets thrown around with abandon and without — it seems to me —much forethought. I’ll try and point out why things are always more complicated than they … Continue reading
. . . but I’m going to stop here, with this post. It’s pretty clear to me — much like with religion — I’ll never have a reasonable conversation about guns. Frankly, that’s pretty sad. If you — the avid … Continue reading
There is a lot of breath being expended on guns, gun control, and all associated issues, and all stemming from the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Opinions abound. Heck, if you search this blog, you’ll find mine, including … Continue reading
You can easily find my opinions on guns, gun violence, gun control, and violence in general. As a rule, in every prior instance when I expressed my opinions, I was mad. No; mad is the wrong word. I was pissed. I … Continue reading

A friend posted a comment on his Facebook page about police response policies and times today. His post related to the hypocrisy of politicians who are protected by armed guards around the clock but desire to…
Sam Harris . . . I am indebted to the man because I will no longer engage in debates about guns, violence, and gun control with anyone who has not read his ruminations on the subjects. Mr. Harris reflects nearly … Continue reading
(2,344 words) Introduction Some might know of my resolve to avoid certain on-line conversations. It’s difficult. I come across articles, comments, and information that stir the urge to express my opinion. Expressing my opinion is not a problem; that’s almost … Continue reading
Sometimes it’s simple stuff . . . Why did they call “stutter” so? It’s a singularly difficult word for me to say, and any hope of explaining why I sometimes can’t speak goes right out the window. Same in Italian … Continue reading
Yesterday, the verdict was announced on the Zimmerman case. It annoys me I need only mention the name without explaining who Zimmerman is, and what the case is. How did this one event balloon to such importance? I don’t want … Continue reading
Don’t worry . . . I’m not about to swear again. I have to admit, it felt somewhat cathartic, but was unsatisfactory as far as presenting my opinions. Therefore, this is more along my usual rant regarding the stupid. … Continue reading
