Short Stories and other N.P.T. projects

Now that book one, Broken City, is done and in publication, I've decided to post my N.P.T. (non-productive time) projects and other nonsense things here (including my political plays). The main reason for this is they seem to draw more comments (especially the "God calls.." stuff).
Although the "God calls..." require more work, I have such fun with them that I still have to call them N.P.T. pieces. I already have the next one in mind but am waiting for the elephants and donkeys to shape up their brain clay enough to figure out who (whom) they want to put at the head of their respective herds.

Politically, right now, my thoughts are on September when we get an 'informed' opinion on whether the surge is working in Iraq. My son is heading for his third trip there in October so...guess what I want to hear from the dunderheads in Washingmachine City. But the way things are heating up (take that as cooking to boiling) my money is we're heading for a border quite soon NOT bearing suitcases.

Jumping In

Hello all my blogging fans. It's been a hectic summer but my book will be available on ebay and amazon next now it's time to get back to blogging about everything in general and the up-coming election in particular.
It's hard to believe that this campaign has been in progress for nearly a year now. It won't be long before they're starting the next campaign a month or two after the inaugurqation.

So anyway, I can predict the Demo ticket (Hillary/Obama) but the GOP is going to be harder, especially if Fred Thompson jumps in (which is probably likely). His stint on Law and Order will probably make him a quick front runner and I see a Thompson/Romney ticket at this time.
The Newt is considering but I don't think he's got a chance unless everyone else running goes into a coma. The one good thing that's coming out of this campaign is we are going to bring the boys home.

Not much else at this time so I'm going to get back to work on the second book, Murder on High Ground, as P.I. Hamilton Shamrock plods on to rid his city of the bad guys.
