  • The Trial of Blood

    by Andrew Porter Brown
    In 55 years of teaching in both high school and college, I’ve always wondered why American history is presented the way it is.

I went to a writing seminar conducted by the celebrated Civil War historian Shelby Foote and he was gracious as Southern gentlemen are who smoke pipes and... more

    by Robert Boog
    Do you remember 2020 and the Corona virus pandemic? Back then, California was shutdown like Blockbuster Video, and while spending time watching daytime TV, I noticed several ads promoting, “Latuda”. What was is Latuda? What is it used for?
