The “A” Word

I have long ago grown weary of euphemisms used to blur, mislead or hide actuality. For instance, once I am dead, I died. I did not “pass on;” “go to a better place” or “transition.” I died.

Book Review Curiosity: The Desire to Know and Why Your Future Depends on It

Not very often does a book come along that I feel is about me until I read Ian Leslie’s book “Curiosity: The Desire to Know and Why Your Future Depends on It.” I shouldn’t be writing this review because I am biased, which a reporter should never be.
