Name: Alex Jay Berman Source: unca20080913.htm Here I must disagree with Our Genial Host and say that there are a great many worthy short story collections other than those by the writers he has named--this I know because I've been putting them in boxes. Which brings us to the Bad news portion of o...

Earl, I'm sorry if I came off to you as didactic or condescending; that was never what I intended. It's not enough to read and surf nowadays, though--you have to really dig deep to find things--and the dearth of real news coverage and investigative journalism these days (excepting Seymour Hersh, Gre...

McCain actively campaigned for the endorsement of extreme right-wing televangelist John Hagee , who has called the Ca...

Paul, Austin indeed calls me. Problem is, it's calling collect, and I cannot afford to accept the charges. In the beginning of every March, I go to my union's Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. I harangue Congressmen and Senators, network a bit, maybe visit my uncle (a MUST this year), and g...
