So, as you can
see read if you click here, I was working all weekend. And today I got up and got ready for yet another day trying to write with dystonia. And as I clumped upstairs with one constantly clenched foot after drying my hair, I heaved a sigh. And my husband asked me, “What’s wrong?” I said, “Nothing.” Then, I went upstairs and read my email. I get lots of information by email. I tend to scan it quickly , or I wouldn’t get a blasted thing done.
Then, I went to acupuncture. While I was on the table, I was thinking. Not asleep, not even drifting off. Just thinking. Well, the strangest thing happened. I felt a hard thump on my back. As if a hand had clapped it and someone was saying, “Well done!”
And now because I have a headful of ideas that are driving me insane, some headlines, with occasional commentary:
Thank you, Rachel Maddow!
I’m just a blue collar writer who can barely type this post. I wrote this column after I realized Amazon was monopolizing the publishing market and I started to think about crowdsourcing as an alternative way to fund my writing career. Now Amazon wants to get into the spy business. Your sales are helping them. Congrats, lady!
You could if you donate to my crowdsourcing campaign for literacy and relief efforts. Each donation goes to the Red Cross and is 100% tax deductible.
In exchange for contributions, you get books from the Sam McRae mystery series.
Gee, Chris Hedges. I wrote a post last Veteran’s Day that you might want to read.
In local news:
And if he could see Columbia today, he’d probably want to
kill someone die tear it down try to do what they’re doing now. The village centers are dead dying hanging on for dear life.
The good news is that Howard County has a much more diverse population now.
The bad news is that we’re still dealing with affordable housing issues.
BTW, Columbia bears no resemblance to this show. But it’s good for a laugh. And my husband and I mock it nearly endlessly. Almost like my sister does Portlandia, except this show is actually funny!
In national news:
My own protagonist said it. Life isn’t always fair.
And what have we learned from this?
PS: The cosmos bless America and all countries. And may there always be an England, Paul.

UPDATE 2: One more thing and I’ll shut up. Here’s an Indiegogo campaign “Send my cancer-mother on holiday”. Eric’s mom lost her breast to cancer, she’s gone through chemo and so on. Please click the link
, so I don’t have to type anymore, because it explains everything. Thanks!
