To Bribe or Not to Bribe 

For those who can’t afford to, or would rather not, bribe, here are some thoughts for anyone facing college admission.

Coming from a family of teachers at all levels; having spent most of my working life in one college or university or another,  including a dozen years as an academic advisor at a major university; being the parent of two college grads and of a current high school junior with high ambitions and qualifications both academic and athletic, I’ve got more thoughts about the subject of college and college admissions than most any busy person (meaning most anyone alive today) would have the time or patience to read at length about.

So I will attempt to give only what seems most important.


Dear Darcy, It Is Finished

This past week, I finished my most ambitious novel. I call it For America, because it is meant as a gift I hope will delight people who sense the need for a different ruling class (which in a democracy means the voters, no?), and help some others recognize that need.

I have worked on this story whenever inspiration struck since my big girl Darcy, who is now a school administrator, was tiny.  

One day when little Darcy noticed me staggering around the house with my head in the clouds  she said, "Oh no. Crazy ol' Daddy's working on The Grass Crisis again."

She got most of that right, the crazy part and what I was working on. Only the title back then was The Gas Crisis.  Not The Grass Crisis.
