A major New York City area hospital was the scene of a stunning series of gunshots today in which 5 were wounded and two more including the shooter were dead. Dr. Henry Bello, the shooter, had slipped into the hospital wearing a white lab coat in which he hid a “long gun.” As I’ve written

Manchester, We Mourn With You – May 22, 2017

“Music,” it’s said, “soothes the savage beast.” And if some 20000 who attended the nearly packed Manchester Arena last night in the United Kingdom had been able to tell you after the show was over, perhaps all but one of them might have believed that old, misquoted adage. As I write, the toll is at 22

Murder By Frog With A Twist Of Faulkner, Part 1

It may have been my first semester in college when I read “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner but I loved his ability to wrap the reader around his pinky finger and perhaps add a touch of the macabre while tossing in the element of humor-edged surprise. But I have to tell you there was

The World Tapestry – Throwback to Pakistan’s 2010 Solar Return

While this will appear to be somewhat disjointed–and perhaps it is–this article needs a bit of a prelude to explain what happened in the months between the August 2010 Independence Day celebrations for both India and Pakistan and when I finally posted the Pakistan 2010 Solar Return in late February 2011 even though I’d posted

Please note: This is the first of a two-part article. April 10, 2016: During my trip to India in 2013, I had the honor of staying with friends through most of my time there. I’m not writing about each place this time however and am reserving my thoughts for one state alone. Kerala is truly a

Tragedy in Texas Today

The headline was clear enough, but I didn’t see enough to know what was happening there. I only remembered the last time I heard about shootings on a military base in Texas. It was in 2009. So while I don’t always write this brief of an article especially in what’s still considered an active situation,
