A few years back there was a TV advertisement for a shipping company — I don't recall whether it was FedEx or UPS or one of the others. It showed a small business taking their web site live to advertise and sell their product. The ad shows them reacting with joy as they start to […]
As long as I'm cheerfully pimping Patrick's posts, I would be remiss not to call your attention to this excellent piece about how the circle of life works in the Lone Star State — drunk driver causes fatal crash, she ups and sues the driver she rear ended, the lawyer who represents her gets cases […]
Huge congrats to Patrick, who blogs here at at his own blog Social Services for Feral Children.

…this is why I wish I were.
I'll be following it at The Artful Writer.
Major congrats are due to my friend Craig Mazin over at The Artful Writer, an increasingly successful screenwriter, director, and producer and a very funny guy. Our sons are in a playgroup together, which is how we met. Craig is like unto a god among men — not because he has an IMDB page, but […]
