 I wrote this about 2 1/2 years ago for a book I was working on.  It seems appropriate to post now in lieu of the tragic  events in Boston.

The FBI determines that there is a cell of 5 involved. Next is a subway bombing. The 3rd is a Broadway bombing killing everyone in the packed theater. Intelligence develops that it is a cell out… [read post]

As I watched the unfolding of events in Boston this past week, I have several thoughts on my mind. Two have been pre-eminent: I feel deeply for those who have suffered losses of life, and limb, which means those directly touched by the bombs’ effects.  I fear deeply for those who have suffered a loss of liberty, which is all the rest of us. I don’t know when, or exactly how, we’ve come to where we are today. I mean, I have my theories. What happened to us hasn’t… [read post]

It's been kind of a rough week. Many of you know that most of my hilariously frustrating experiences in an interracial relationship take place in the city I call home: Boston, Massachusetts.  I've mentioned the Boston Marathon in a previous post and most recently during my own journey from backslidden jogger to 2012 Boston Marathoner. Last Monday I spent the afternoon camped out near the finish line of the Marathon, at the corner of Newbury and Hereford Streets, cheering on friends running… [read post]

The last week was like no other week in the Greater Boston region. Two cowardly terrorists desecrated our beloved Patriot’s Day and the 117th running of the Boston Marathon. Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard, and Officer Sean Collier are names we will never forget, along with the scores of victims maimed and injured by the senseless bombings. May they rest in peace, and heal from their injuries. I grew up in the Boston area, and when I went to undergrad at Miami of Ohio, I was… [read post]

More people than normal are reading my blog the last few days. Given that a few weeks ago, after I was confronted by members of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Department — more on this later — and wrote about it, I received 5,000 visitors in one day, and though it has dropped off quite a bit since then, even without writing much more my traffic stats are still quite high, that’s saying something. And why are they coming? According to the admin page of my blog, they’re… [read post]

It’s no surprise that the FBI has been questioning Dzhokhar Tsarnaev over the weekend in hopes of learning more about his motives in connection with the bombing that took place at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.  What is surprising is the fact that he is being questioned without first being read his Miranda rights. If Tsarnaev wants to seek legal counsel, he’ll need to remember on his own that he has the right to an attorney, and that anything he says is admissible in… [read post]
