After more than eight years of posting on this blog, I have decided to bring it to an end - at least for the time being. I am actively posting on three other websites and don't have the time to maintain this one as well.
There is always a chance that I will return to blogging here. However, at least for the time being, I feel a need to put this on hold and focus on those other three sites.
For those who still follow this blog, and wish to follow me elsewhere, the first of the three sites is my neighborhood blog - the Warrendale (Detroit) Blog. I also review books, movies, and television shows at BlogCritics.org. Last, but not least, I write travel related articles for Examiner.com.
To everyone who has read this blog over the years, thank you!

According to local news reports, two kids were shot today in Detroit's Brightmoor neighborhood when an argument over how to make Kool-Aid turned violent.
I swear, I'm not making this up. Two kids really and truly were shot today because of an argument over Kool-Aid.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why I write fiction. Reality is just too damn strange to be believed some times.

3D printing has been around for awhile now, but it has finally come up with something that truly grabs my attention. They have finally started to use 3D printers to make custom bikinis.
Unfortunately, no one has come up with a way to use a 3D printer to create a bikini model. I suppose that will come with a future upgrade. For now, we have to do it the old-fashioned way - either pay them lots of cash to show up or convince them you're European royalty.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recently threatened to remove President Barack Obama from the ballot this year in Arizona due to concerns that President Obama wasn't really born in the United States. He asked the State of Hawaii to confirm the validity of his birth certificate once more.
However, the State of Hawaii hasn't responded to Secretary Bennett's request. This is likely because the Republican Governor of Hawaii Linda Lingell signed a bill into law two years ago making it their state's official policy to ignore such requests because they are so ridiculous and troublesome.
On behalf of Democrats everywhere, I would like to express my profound gratitude to Secretary Bennett and birthers across this great nation. It would normally be very difficult for a sitting President to be re-elected with unemployment as high as it is and with approval ratings as low as President Obama's are.
However, Secretary Bennett and his ilk appear to be going out of their way to make President Obama look amazing in comparison. The more people talk about birth certificates, the less they are talking about other things. This can only be a positive for President Obama's re-election and Democrats nationally.

Why, yes, there is a place where an ordinary guy like me can rent a helicopter gunship to pump round after glorious round of 7.62 mm ammunition into the side of a mountain. Full details of this are available on the hotel's web site.
Do we live in a magnificent country or what?
The only question that remains is: who wants to go with me?
