Missouri Cops: Electrocuted
          I happened to be examining the records relating to the deaths of police officers in the line of duty and came across this bizarre instance, for the killer was not human. But before I continue I'll explain something about the technology that was employed one hundred and eighteen years ago by the police in order to maintain communication links between beat officers and their headquarters; for although officers back in the year 1900 were pretty tough types who could hand out some judicial excess when the situation called for it, they were armed with a stick and a sidearm because it was expected that they could and often were attacked by persons unknown and either harmed or killed outright so the police departments back then in cities like Saint Louis, Missouri, had the telephone company rig up special police telephones at virtually every intersection so a police officer was never far from a phone. Because this was well b

The Red Reality of Hollywood
"The actual history of communism -- the agony of the millions whose lives were destroyed by it -- is almost entirely missing from American cinema. The reason for this rests in Hollywood's own convoluted political history, a history that includes the "back story" of communism's own largely uncharted offensive in the studios.
The cinema's great potential for persuasion excited Joseph Stalin and the Communist Party of the United States of America (CPUSA), which Stalin controlled. "One of the most pressing tasks confronting the Communist Party in the field of propaganda," wrote the indefatigable Comintern agent Willi Muenzenberg in a 1925 Daily Worker article, "is the conquest of this supremely important propaganda unit, until now the monopoly of the ruling class. We must wrest it from them and turn it against them." It was an ambitious task, but conditions would soon turn to the party's advantage.
The Great Depression convinced many that capit

Free Speech is Under Direct Attack
"Fellow Citizens of the United States of America."
“I put my the following work under your protection. It contains my opinion upon Religion. You will do me the justice to remember, that I have always strenuously supported the right of every Man to his opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.”
“The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is Reason. I have never used any other, and I trust I never shall.”
“Your affectionate friend and fellow citizen,”
THOMAS PAINE - Age of Reason
Free speech is sacred because you do not know. You do yourself harm by denying yourself access to information. You don't know what the truth is, you must find it. Therefore, all information should be made avai

This Point in Time The Gardener
I am offering the prologue to This Point in Time as a free read. Please enjoy!

Some post-editing changes were made -- especially correcting Caracas to Caracal. :)
I live in the Charleston area and when we visit downtown Charleston, we always make a point to walk by Rainbow Row. It is such a neat place, full of history, and one never gets tired of walking by it. When you do, be on the lookout for massive bolts and such - the results of the 1886 Charleston Earthquake. I will provide a link in the regular comments. Overall, I found this to be very enjoyable and a nice representation of Rainbow Row itself. I can even envision seeing you, board and such, painting this as you stand on the wall near Battery Park - looking down Rainbow Row.
The first thought that comes to mind when viewing this is hauntingly beautiful. I know that you had the concept of her holding the lotus as a flower but this choice you made makes it totally unique. There is an etherealness to the scene - almost as if she, or she had someone/small group, go on a quest to retrieve the item. It reminds me of the illustrations from magazines that supported D&D and other fantasy role-playing games. Like I said, this is a very beautiful piece and I congratulate you on your choice to make the flower and actual crystal form instead - nicely done!
Repository for fleshing out ideas on the proposed series.

Book II: Anusha of Oz
Adventures of Jonathan and Betsy, and....(Betsy gets a baby girl!) their adopted Indian (as in India, it's an homage to my fellow Indian co-workers) daughter. Her name is Anusha for "a beautiful morning star!" She turns out to have Aspergers in that she's very, very, very bright and focuses on patterns and ensuring they stay the same-which will come in handy when she saves he parents. Grows up quickly to that of an 8-year old. Tina, from Book I, will be her one intensely close friend. (She is very socially nervous and awkward but one-on-one more comfortable, takes things literally) Adoption and autism/asperger's will be themes. Dual plots: Ix Expedition and Ozma/Dorothy visiting Munchkinland-three kidnapping attempts on Ozma. (All stopped by David-her new security detail-and Trot. Trot and David are married and they work so well as a team.)

Book III: Odyssey in Oz
"1530" The Chosen Tribes brought to an island
Adventures of David and Trot on the seas. 
Bio-warfare in Oz!

Book IV: Redemption
Throughout the previous two books, characters were being prepared and Ozma is being changed. The others had to go through their adventures in order for this final quest. Ozma once again faces a challenge for the throne and the Nomes and Phantasims have teamed up. Lurline shows up and comforts Ozma and knows that so many things happened too fast for her to handle at once and that damaged her deep down but because of the events from the first book, beautiful changes have been made-one final one... She is proud of her daughter and lets Dorothy know that she was brought to Oz to be the completed half of Ozma and now the cycle is to be completed and...for this time....Ozma WILL defend her rightful kingdom.
