  1. La Tene Celts

    IRELAND: There is nothing in the historical or archaeological record that would suggest that Ireland experienced any influx of people during the La Tene expansion. The few La Tene artifacts all appear to be locally made and there is nothing else in the record that would point to anything other than an indigenous population who adopted some of the La Tene cultural “package”, adapting it to fit within their own cultural framework (e.g., Raftery, 1991).

    This made no sense. – None at all. The bizarre admixture of approval and indignation that was persisting, subsisting, and increasing within me added to the overall nonsensical gauntlet through which I was being put. Just as soon as I would enter a zone of comfort, this region was tactically obliterated; I was left cold and naked in the Super Unknown. Where once there seemed to be knowledge, he would flick it away as if it were a languid fly. This is an awesome authority, ...

Toying around, I sent it to several publishers; and have received notice this morning that Random House would like it turned into a full-length novel with possible screen play adaptation. I do hope you enjoy it.

  5. My Journey from Catholicism and Back to It Again

    It wasn't easy. I experimented with all kinds of religions to try to find something that uniquely fit me. It all started with the pedophilia scandal of 2002. I wanted to distance myself from association with a Church that was being made famous for its corruption on the part of the clergy, yet! These were innocent children who were being preyed upon! With self-righteous indignation and my desire to impress a girl who later became the mother of my daughter, I left the Church for the Lutherans. Then, ...
