Beating the CyberBully

If you have an online life, you know the CyberBullies are stalking around you.  They send you hate mail or leave anonymous/faked comments on your blog.  They hide their identities because they are not brave enough to own their own words.  They live in the muck and tar of disease and depression and they are not happy unless they can try to bring you down to their sycophant level.

Unplugging the Prison Microwave

Rogue inmates are part of the criminal genius community:  Without their evil cunning and punishing intelligence and their clever ability to create something out of nothing for self-profit — they would not be behind bars.  Only the SuperGenius mind would think to use Vaseline as an implement of death in Lansing, Michigan:

Palin the Pig: 091101 NYC and the Child Martyr

Celebrate the Dead, Mourn the Living

During July 2001, my wife and I were searching for a new apartment in Jersey City, New Jersey. After 14 years of living in New York City: Manhattan in Morningside Heights near Columbia University and Saint John the Divine; Alphabet City; the Bronx’s Co-Op City, we decided it was time for a change. We wanted more room for less money. We found a great real estate Broker named Gertrude who, in turn, found us a beautiful new place to live.
