The links below are for additional writings, some previously published, and some of that long ago in old print magazines and journals. My old boss had greenish-brown scales from his paternal T-rex granddad and his secretary (not personal assistant) had a colourful, expandable neck frill that shot out with a “Fwap!” when she got excited. That’s how long ago it seems. I typed on a Smith-Corona classic portable – only 22 pounds light. You could take it anywhere! Plop it on the hotel room desk and off you go, only to spend hours transmitting the story and photos page and image at a time while the sun rose, breakfast passed, you showered, dressed, held a power meeting or two, and then had lunch. The good old days, indeed, although I admit fewer mistakes ended in print than do today.
About the links: Some of you have read them but those who haven’t or wish to revisit them may find the writings fun and interesting. They’re about history, ideas, and culture and that pesky religion-politics thing. I hope you enjoy them. – Brian
