Spring is in the air, and a young man's heart turns to thoughts of love.  I am not a young man, however, so while the rest of you are out enjoying sunshine and greenery and doing your grotesque courting rituals, I am inside basking in the warming glow of a computer screen, thinking about all the role-playing games that mig ...

With some things, you have to learn by either seeing it or participating in it.  And you know yourselves that there are people walking around your community today that have all types of degrees that should be at this meeting, but are not here.  Right?  Because you can have as many degrees as a thermometer; if you don't h ...

Apparently there is much angst in the funny pages these days about the status of "Millennials".  This is apparently a generation that happened when no one was looking, and it is a subject of some controversy whether this generation is the worst of all generations to have ever existed, or actually super cool and great.  Wh ...

And so it was jail again: he could tell, before he had sight, from the smell. Shit and piss and standing water and stale-peach body funk. He clenched his eyelids against torch-light and let his mind wander along his body: his jaw was fat and sore, his lower back had been peppered by clubs (and worse, he desperately needed t ...

Crime is no laughing matter, unless you’re a clown robbing a toy store. But sometimes, scanning the police logs and crime reports from San Antonio and other nearby law enforcement agencies, the curious blend of absurdity, wrongdoing, and straight-faced journalistic argot makes for an odd read.  Just because I don't live ...

It was famously said by a man who had never been there that Hell is other people. Like most epigrams, it’s more clever than it is accurate. Hell is other people, yes; but not many. The energy and logistics involved in getting a dead man’s shade into Hell are so vast and complicated that it’s a fate generally reserved ...

While I've always been opposed to the death penalty, I cannot say it has always been for lofty moral reasons.  I'm certainly not opposed to killing in self-defense, and there are absolutely a lot of people who will leave the world significantly improved once they are rotting away in a frequently defiled grave.  (That said ...
