EXCLUSIVE: Diane Downs Never Held a Weapon, How Could She Have Shot Her Kids?.

It's hard to say exactly what convicted Diane Downs in the shooting of her children, a terrible event that played out on a dark night in 1983. If one word plays into the scenario over and over, it is "emotion" and that is indeed a raw, powerful determiner of guilt in many cases, sometimes appropriately, sometimes not.

MCAS El Toro: Modern Day Marine Ghost Town.

There was a time, a long time in fact, when the best possible stateside duty a Marine could hope for was Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Orange County.

Trump Continues his Anti-Immigrant Politics.

At the eleventh hour, Trump suspended the tariffs saying that Mexico had agreed to new and broader concessions to curb migration, which included deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border, and an expansion of a program to allow asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while their legal cases proceed. In the announcement of the tariff suspension, Trump failed to disclose that Mexico had already agreed to these “new and broader” concessions last December.

American Motorcycle Culture: The One Percenters.

A friend of mine who is the President of a local motorcycle club chapter, explained this week that a college criminology course in Salem, Oregon is teaching students false information about the history of bikers and motorcycle clubs.


Confessions of a Marine Corps Mutineer  March 28, 2011, 5:00 am 1 comments in the last 30 days. comments
Confessions of a Marine Corps Mutineer .

I became a bit of an expert on the military legal system during my time as a U.S. Marine. I don't know if it was half me and half the Marine Corps, or just how it all came to be the mess that it was; but I do feel that I became a qualified expert of sorts at being a Marine troublemaker.


Food for ThoughtDecember 31, 2013, 10:51 am 1 comments in the last 30 days. comments
Food for Thought.

There's nothing quite like the use of metaphors in English to confuse, awaken and stimulate thought. Take the title of this article for instance. Is it about food? Or about thought? For those adventurous enough to type "Food for thought" into the Google search engine, you'll find it's used for both--and more. One food-for-thought website provides a home for one-act plays. Another is a website that offers articles and a newsletter about Islam.

On the Virginia Beach Mass Shooting.

I am saddened at the killing of 12 people in Virginia Beach by a disgruntled government employee who later died after a shootout with police. “It’s not just mass shootings,” said U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), adding that each day in America gun violence occurs “on sidewalks and playgrounds and people’s backyards. "It’s happening family by family across the country. And it doesn’t get the same headlines. And that is wrong.”


State Anti-Abortion LawsMay 17, 2019, 12:04 pm 1 comments in the last 30 days. comments
State Anti-Abortion Laws.

Alabama became the eleventh state to pass anti-abortion legislation. Now eleven of the 22 states with both a Republican governor and legislature have passed an anti-abortion law. I expect it to be eventually 22 of 22. The Republicans know or should know that these laws are unconstitutional under the Supreme Court’s earlier decision in Roe v. Wade.
