About what you’ll read here.
Writers often write to make sense of the world around them. I’m that kind of writer. I frequently find myself perplexed by numerous things the world around me seems to take for granted.

I’ve lived in Cyprus, Germany, the United Kingdom, and in six American states–Nevada, Alabama, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Illinois.. My favorite sport is association football and my team is Liverpool FC.

I enjoy various types of music including Opera and classic rock.

The decision was based largely on a selective definition of a right to privacy. The mainstream media seem incapable of not hyperventilating about this issue. For example, CNNs […]
Principle One. The leader must own everything in his or her world. No excuses. No dodging. No equivocations. The mission comes first. Always. And the mission is owned by leaders at every level of the organization. The difference between a senior leader and a junior leader is the scope of their influence in executing the […]
I was watching highlights of yesterday’s match between Liverpool and Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final. It was magic. Liverpool were on fire in the first half with Mane scoring two goals and Konate opening the scoring in the ninth minute with a spectacular headers off a corner from (I think) Andy Robertson. City […]
