We have decided to post our mystery novel, Bartlett House to the web in it’s entirety. The first eight chapters are now up, and we will release another one each Thursday, through May 7, 2009.
You can find it here: Bartlett House: A Will Adelhardt – Lucy Hidalgo Mystery.
Bartlett House takes place in Portland, Oregon.
Wall Street is about to fleece America —again. Citizens should be loudly demanding that any bailout benefit the taxpayers who will be saddle with the trillion dollar debt. Here are some good solutions:
Bernie Sanders: The Middle Class Must Not Be Forced to Bail Out Wall Street Greed
Chris Hedges: Fleecing What’s Left of the Treasury
Kucinich: No ‘cash for trash,’ give taxpayers a stake in bailout
and in those days
we sought enlitenment
that low calorie cool
whip of knowledge,
flagellating one another’s
before the cameras
of the six oclock news
until the pain became
too much to bear
now we spend our days
baring our pain on the internet
watching Fox News
sky cams hovering
over half naked starlets
thinking about when
we were the actors
if we’d only been smarter then
Selu, The Corn Mother shed seven drops of her blood and from the spots where the blood fell grew seven stalks of corn to feed the people.
Then came the white Europeans, who took Selu’s corn and used it to feed their cattle and make plastic and sweeteners, while the people went hungry. Now they have decided to use it to feed their SUVs.
