The Case of Klipspringer’s Shoes–Part 2 of 3

March 2, 2011


When I’m reading an all-time great like Gatsby for the second or third time, I begin to imagine what the first draft of the story looked like when the author submitted it to his editor for review.

The Case of Klipspringer’s Shoes–Part 1 of 3

March 1, 2011

There’s a musicality and rhythm in listing three that always works better than two […]

February 28, 2011


Someday I’ll have my revenge. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But maybe two days from now at 9:15. You may be wondering AM or PM? I’m not saying, so you’ll have to sweat it out. Although I’ll give you one hint: It will be after American Idol. After I watch American Idol and walk […]

Tough Childhood

February 22, 2011


I had a tough childhood, mostly because my dad wasn’t around much. Oftentimes we wouldn’t see him until five or six o’clock in the evenings. And all day on Saturdays. Also, all day Sundays. And he was a teacher at our school, so we ate lunch with him at school, and he had the summers […]
