Three Little Words

Beautiful. Cheap. Fascinating. In my younger days, say pre-thirty-three or so, I’d use those three words to describe myself to some lucky lady at the bar before asking her to buy me a drink. Honestly, fellas, in my world it didn’t work as well as you think it would. In fact, it was easier getting in and out of Cuba as an American than it was making that line work. (more…)

Big Bang Theories

I took this photo in Vietnam – one of those places in the world that explode in color – color so bright and vivid and saturated, that it doesn’t seem real.

Thankfully, my news channel feels the same way and won’t bother much with boring ol’ “real” news for at least another month. Drawing inspiration from American politicians, I’d like to speak my mind about an understandably sensitive topic. And taking a page from the Politician Playbook, I’m going to attempt to make what could be a valid point, but I’ll try to surround it with enough disrespect and lack of compassion that people stop listening.
