By Amo, published on Feb 21, 2009

...schools…all this on an $80,000 income.

The article went on to explain that he’s been borrowing money from family and friends to make his mortgage payments, and has even appealed to his congressman Rep. Anthony Weiner, to intervene.

Reagan Era Republicans: Will They Be The Ones "left Behind"?

By john robertson, published on Feb 2, 2009

...urgent need to convert non-believers. Players battling non-believing citizens in the streets of New York may choose to pray to increase their strength, recruit converts to the cause, perform exorcisms, or shoot to kill those who refuse to be born again. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, where only an Evangelical Army can create the peace promised by the second coming of Christ. Both good and evil are ironically animated in a rather expressionless, almost maniacal way as they roam aimlessly about the ruins. In fact, if it wasn’t for color coated halos it could be... (more)

...of mystics and the like of rebels without a cause it happened/ The bluepulse of fate speeded up/

One more once! Wisdom is the coin of my tiny realm/

So the story goes and goes/ Tuna, the great fish and I were presently buying kilos of Mexican marijuana on the California side, Manhattan Beach to be exact - We transported the weed via motor home to the New England area abound in colleges/ The profit margin elevated the fish and I to the upper income bracket/ We dealt with boyhood friends attending colleges in the Boston and surrounding area/ The simplicity of this game sucked ... (more)

...example…), the country will only sink deeper and deeper into economical and civil instability?

Maybe can we actually already say all that since a few days ago a symbol of the United States economical worry, the National Debt Clock (the famous clock on 1133 Avenue of the Americas, in Manhattan, displaying in real time the level of the American national debt) could not display the figure on its screen without getting rid of the dollar symbol. On 30th September, one needed to add a dollar sticker to unable the clock to show that the American debt reached more than... (more)

October's Featured Contributor - Bill Friday

By Digidave, published on Oct 6, 2008

...Scully. Every writer is a product of a lifetime of experiences, and all of them, in some way, shape and inform what we write. Chris Carter was raised in Bellflower on baseball and Vin Scully and all he was able to make out of it was The X-Files. Quentin Tarantino worked in a video store in Manhattan Beach and all he could turn that into was Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. All we, as writers, should expect from ourselves is to write what we already are. That’s what lies at the core of Citizen Journalism. If you see it, write it.

And always remember to use the spell... (more)

Patience Is A Virtue!

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Aug 16, 2008

...only one. It brings out the ugly side of me and with that it brings out the ugly side in others because they have to retaliate on they're behalf, and you can't blame them for sticking up for themselves. A monster came out of me yesterday!

I was invited to a small party at Sharkeys in Manhattan Beach. That place is always packed and I'm not huge fan of crowds. I don't like people touching me while I have to make my way to the bar and it's a journey to get back to the table and usually your seat is taken. I never smile, hardly because I always feel on edge in those kind of places.... (more)

Flying High? No Thanks

... to the northeast trails high up in the mountains and enjoys camping along the way.

Personally, I’m not so inclined to be up that high. I don’t even like being up in a plane. I get dizzy just watching clips of people looking over the edge of a tall building. Whenever I’ve gone into Manhattan and someone wants to go to the top of the Empire State Building, I make sure I hold all their stuff and mine since I won’t be going up with them. Listen, it didn’t turn out so well for King Kong, so why push the envelope?

Now, don’t get me wrong…I have and will get on a plane.... (more)
