I'm back like a vertebrae!

I don't know who did it or why, but someone paid to have my account reactivated. Whoever did it: Thanks! I'd forgotten how cool this site was.
I haven't been on for a couple years since becoming a dad. Since then I've also gotten published and gotten a better job and I've become a...

Sorry about the delay in blogging, but since the last post I've discovered I'm going to be a father, landed a book deal, had to bail a good friend out of jail and deal with the fact that rae was in a car accident that totaled the car. She's okay, but the car's a goner. We're now going through the...

"...no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States." -- Article VI, Section 3 of the United States Constitution.

Why is it the people who claim to be the most patriotic, and wave the flag the most, seem to be the most ignorant of the laws, foundations, and motivations of our country?
Sometimes, someone says...

I agree, I believe that swearing in on the Koran would be a celebration of diversity, and what American was founded on

Okay, here's the thing that really irks me about the national political conversation, or lack thereof. We really don't, as a country, seem to care as much about progressing as we do about our "side" being right. It doesn't matter what party you belong to, even if it's a third party. I'm going to use the Foley incident ONLY because...

i, by no means, have the right answer to that question. i do, though, have ideas. first i think you have to get more people to care. they need to realize they can make a difference. having an opinion is important, and you have no right to criticize the government if you did not participate in choosing in. for goodness sake, why doesn't everyone vote? then i think it would be a good idea to eliminate political parties and start choosing persons for elected offices based on their experience rather than which side they are on.
but that's just my opinion in the dreamworld that is my ideology.

So, last night rae and I attended a fetish flea market and play party in D.C. It's been the first time in a while we went out and mingled with others in the lifestyle. Of course, my friend Vox next door and all our friends are in the lifestyle, so we are frequently among people like us, but this was the first time...

Well, Sept. 5 was my birthday. I really don't tend to make that big a deal out of it. In fact, the older I get the less a deal I like to make of it. I doubt I'm very different in that regard than most people.
I'm now 33 years old. Looking back, I can't say I'm dissatisfied with the...

First, I'm impressed at how well-balanced you seem about your age and your accomplishments. It's ridiculously hard to find anyone who is content in this country, and damned refreshing when I do see it.

Second, I am damned jealous of your making out like a thief. My brother has collected swords for a long time, and I've always loved them. Picking up a very good one and feeling the balance of it, and the artistry that was put into making it... yum.

Signs, signs everywhere signs....

Not sure if this is a local phenomenon or something national, but here in Maryland I've noticed an interesting trend in political signs on the runup to this November's election. The Republicans are not announcing their party on their campaign signs. I was driving around a few days ago and it hit me that neither Ehrlich nor three other...

Awww, you desesrved it. I really hope you do more sets for them. I had to stop myself from "Favorite"-ing every pic from that set.

One of my big pet peeves is what I call the castration of the American male. By this, I mean the penchant in our society for the last, oh, 20 years, to portray everything that is intrinsically male to be negative attributes that need to be cast off.
You can see it everywhere you go; on television, in books and in movies, everything men have...

Arrrgh! I'm going crazy. I'm on the verge of achieving one of my biggest dreams, a book deal. The deal is with a big role-playing game company and may be the first in a series of books. But I will have to sign a nondisclosure agreement, meaning I can't talk about it publicly, so all I can do is tell close friends...
