    No more Gay-Straight Alliance

    Humph! We were social justice warriors before it was cool. Now that it's what the cool kids do, I'll have to find something new and anti-social to occupy my angst.

    God made you this way

    The problem protestants have with this is that to accept God made you this way, they have to accept implied biblical error in the six whole verses in the protestant bible that might apply to homosexuality. It is hard for any religion to acknowledge an inconsistency. They have, and will, LITERALLY go to war over stuff like that. Europe's history in these matters is quite bloody.
  5. Chapter 16 of my stalled novel Operation Hammerhead will post soon. Chapter 17 will follow soon. I intend to finish it in the next couple of months. Sorry to take so long on getting back to this. I just finished a new degree in which the writing was considerably.. less fun. I must stay close to home, I can bang on some of my stalled projects.

    The Quarry

    I read that way back when in the nineties. It had a lot of 70s nostalgia in it before it was popular. Falling Off a Log was a lot of fun too. Lot's of the old giants don't write for free anymore. I miss them.

    The Words I Don't Ever Say

    The Words I Don't Ever Say When the memories come I can’t sleep Cause the time seems to drag on somehow I’d give up the world just to touch you It seems nowhere is home for me now In this sleep deprived moment On this endless hot summer night This night will eventually be over But I will never be right. We had our time together Sweet days we thought would last I’ve never wanted another Far too soon those days had passed All that I have are my memories Sweet lies I tell myself about the past It’s not at all like it is in the movies The days just go by so fast. You took best things about me When you left me here all alone Here I remain in an empty house No one could ever call a home. We had our time together Sweet days we thought would last I’ve never wanted another Far too soon those days had passed

    After School Surprise

    As soon as the Raptor was airborne, Master Chief Duncan launched a stealth drone that sped ahead of their flight path and began to circle two and a half kilometers high just east of Omaha. Within a few minutes they began to get data. There was a two kilometer long gash in a lush farmlands where the lander had come to earth less than gracefully. There were huge gashes in the insect-like body of the lander. The Tauron lander was all too familiar to Combine forces. It was typical of the Tauron organic technology looking like a terrestrial beetle. If it was loaded out as a typical Tauron lander, it had a company strength of the different insect like creatures the Taurons used as shock troops. From the image captures it was clear that they had been busy. Smoke plumed from over a half dozen downed aircraft and as they watched an A-10 Warthog made a strafing run over the site. Attack helicopters were using the terrain to protect themselves from ground fire and were popping up over the trees to take shots with their 30mm cannons and hellfire missiles. Jeremy asked, "How should we handle this Chief?" Duncan said, "How well can we coordinate with the US Military?" Jeremy said, "I've got all the right codewords- they'll play ball." "Good. If we can get this national guard mechanized unit to cover the north, I say we land to the south, push north and we'll have them in a cross fire." Kellum, Duncan's second, said, "We aren't facing an intact company. It's obvious that they are shot up pretty bad. I don't see any command dragons or griffins. Just gremlins and archers." "I concur", Duncan said. "We don't know what is still in the hull getting sorted. I say that we hit the lander with a couple of krakens to open the ball." There was a loud warning alarm- one minute to the hot zone. Their pilot's voice came over the circuit, "Krakens away. I've got your drop programmed and I'll be standing by for fire support." Jeremy changed channels and said, "Offutt Control this is Centurion. We'll be on target in one mike." A voice replied, "Centurion, this is Offutt, authenticate Victor-Sierra." Jeremy replied, "Tango-Whiskey." "Welcome to the net Centurion. It's getting real." Jeremy was watching the drone feed out of his corner of his eye and saw the two kraken high velocity missiles gut the Tauron lander. For a moment it twitched and writhed like a dying animal and exploded." Master Chief's voice boomed over the command circuit, "3-2-1... Death from above!"

    After School Surprise

    Suddenly a group of men appeared and fanned out around the Prince and what was left of his security detail. One of them approached with a silver box with all sorts of instrumentation on it. He said, "This will release your memory blocks and you'll understand." He pointed it at Jeremy's head and suddenly he did understand. Jeremy said, "How do we get in the bunker?" His lead agent said, "Follow me." They moved through a lush pine forest a few hundred meters and came to a very solid looking steel door in the ground. His lead agent said, "We'll need you thumb print and voice to open it." Jeremy open an access panel, put his thumb on the fingerprint reader and said, "Beta 9". There was a loud snap and the bunker hatch opened. The party went down a steel staircase to another door that automatically opened as they approached. They entered a large room that housed a squad of eight Royal Guardsmen. The oldest, most battle scarred and toughest looking of the bunch smiled and said, "Prince Jeremiah. Well aren't you a sight for sore eyes." Jeremy said, "Good to see you too Duncan. Right now we've got a serious violation of the Talwyn Accords." The hulking Guardsman said, "Yes, I've been following the situation from the command center. About thirty-five minutes ago a Tauron Task Force jumped into the system. It's too much for our stealth cruiser to handle by herself. She has sent a Broken Lance Code to fleet. And... the cats well and truly out of the bag. Several Earth militaries are heavily engaged with Tauron landing forces." Jeremy cursed and said, "Who is fighting them?" Duncan grinned, "Well.. all of them I think. The Russians had a lander at Kiev, the Brits shot one down over Sheffield and here in the states we had a lander just outside Omaha. There's two more in Asia somewhere but the satellite coverage is over the horizon. The American F-22s shot the Omaha lander up so bad she'll never fly again but there are bugs on the ground. " The man Jeremy had been think of as his lead agent said, "The landing at Omaha is near one of our biggest command centers- Offutt Air Force Base. It's where Vice President's hang out in emergencies. They couldn't have picked a bigger hornet's nest to kick over." Duncan said, "The humans are brave but they're taking a beating your highness. What do you want to do?" Jeremy looked at his Royal Guardsmen and said, "We would be a poor guests if we slipped out on this party. Gear up your team Master Chief. The human's are going to need our help." His team immediatly began putting on their combat armor. Jeremy went to a suit locker, stripped to his boxers and climbed in. The command suit immediatly began to boot up as the suits interior snugged fit around him. He asked Chief Duncan, "How should I load out Master Chief?" A gravely voice replied over suit speakers, "Standard kit should do nicely sir. Maybe add a Gauss rifle to crack their command dragons." Jeremy replied, "Done." As soon as the suit was ready, Jeremy pushed a panel in the suit lockers wall. The room turned 180 degrees and opened into the bases small hanger. A Raptor class drop ship was sitting on the Pad and it was already prepping for launch. He walked the combat suit up the loading ramp and took his position as the rest of the team boarded. He set up a call to Offutt Air Force Base and opened a channel, "Offutt Control this is Centurion One. Help is on the way. We'll be the aliens that aren't shooting at you."

    I remember hearing a writing instructor say: It's not the number of words, it's what you say with them.

    Flash Fiction

    Sometimes I use flash fiction to test drive ideas. I think that's how Twilight In the Shadow of the Dragon started. Other times it's just for fun or... maybe I'm axe grinding. With a Whimper was a one shot in which I expanded on the idea: what if antibiotic resistance gets progressively worse? It's bad enough as it is but, it could get a whole lot worse: Black Death worse. Pandemic worse. Who knows? Maybe I plant a seed with that story in someone's mind. I am by no means the only person who is watching this situation nervously. I think its a dangerous situation that not a whole lot of people are aware of. I have a garage full of axes to grind.
