CrimeBake

Crime Bake is a convention for those who love mystery novels and stories. It was a blast! Check out the folks I met- cool people and hot new mystery writers. Plus, a shot of me and my bud, mystery author extraordinaire, Sue Grafton.

   

Nonesuch Books

This terrific place for books in the Mill Creek Shopping Center in South Portland, Maine, is a cozy spot, with friendly help and a wonderful selection. Worth a stop.

Various Place to Check Out
Helping Others Improve Life These organizations assist people and communities to build a better life by aiding them in developing homes, businesses, schools. Instead of giving a handout, they give a hand up.
   
Higher Education? This book details the absurdly rising college costs that are impoverishing the middle class, and putting students and their parents into crushing debt servitude. It shows how the quality is not rising (indeed, in some cases getting worse), and how colleges charge a similar rate for vastly different educational experiences. It lists some of the waste and abuses of the modern colleges, and also shows some who do things well. Solutions to many of the ills are presented. Anyone with kids going to college should read this book and pass it on to others. The entrenched powers who are enriching themselves at our expense are blasting this book-- showing you it's right on the money.
   
Education is Global Here's a discussion forum for serious issues about education, both here and abroad. For example, why is it that in this country we spend a lot more money per student than other countries, without a corresponding increase in quality? How can we improve our schools, and help our students, teachers, and parents?

Liberty News

Throg- (the movie)
Available at:
Liberty News

 

This independent film is a tour de farce, where an immortal idiot goes through history, causing havoc, while avoiding a giant, evil pursuer. It’s bizarre and sickly funny, and like nothing you’ve ever seen (kind of like Ed Wood meets Quentin Tarantino). I play Throg Senior. This film won Best Cinematography at the Boston International Film Festival in 2005.
