On Being a Lottery Ticket Loser. Again.

It's kind of weird to be writing about one trip while working my way home from another but I'm stuck at the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport getting delayed by twenty minutes over and over again for the past couple of hours due to I don't know what.  Hours ago I was in Belize and now I'm sitting here cleaning up photographs from last month's trip to Louisiana after spending a few days with the boys of Indigo Guide Service poking around (mostly unsuccessfully) the marsh for redfis...

Trump and Bezos exiled, Royals riled, and Ted Bundy’s child, in this week’s dubious tabloids

Is the National Enquirer running scared? There’s not a mention of either Amazon chief Jeff Bezos or president Donald Trump in this week’s edition.

Bezos and The Donald escape lightly this week, but others aren’t so lucky. Prince Charles “Disowns Harry!” proclaims the Globe co...

Wacko Jacko “Perv” proof, Queen shafts Prince Charles, and Angie “anorexic” (again) in this week’s fact-challenged tabloids

You can’t argue with the facts, and the fact is, this week’s tabloids don’t have many of them. “Wacko Jacko Flunks Pedophile Lie Test!” reports the National Enquirer. No, there isn’t such a thing as a pedophile lie test. The Enquirer obtained video of Jacko’s deposition in a 1996 child molestation inquiry, and had a “lie detection expert” analyze the singer’s voice stress. “He’s just spouting lies,” concludes the analyst. Science at its best. “Proof Wacko Jacko Was Twisted Perv!” proclaims the G...

Amy discovered the photo above a few weeks ago, and it's stirred up a host of memories from a pivotal period in my life that I feel compelled to document here--I don't expect anyone to read all this, but I suspect I'll enjoy re-reading it myself some day.
