Well tell that to us chronic complainers. We first-worlders who fret and cavil about needing a brand new appliance as if it were foraging atop a towering pile of waste at the landfill. We feel quite put out; it’s a focus of our daily struggles. Then warm to how our life will become better the…

The fisherman on the pier extended his phone and the shattered screen shimmered nonetheless with forty inch stripers. Wow, that’s some catch any luck today? I asked. No I just started, the tide, the tide is going out, he said. It’s best with the tide out. He wore a torn t-shirt and grimy jeans but…

  She is hideous at times and it’s not merely opinion; her history tells of red hats sold families sired in secret and brave souls condemned to delight adoring masses because they did not believe as she believed. Il Duce plied her open for his sick pleasure as have too many priests who swore exactly…
