Even in Reality

I’m having an adventure. No, I wasn’t hired for the adventure, and the only reward I’ll be getting is better health. The main problem is atrial fibrilation—afib—along with low potassium and slow clotting. The last means I can’t take Warfarin, and the former I need to take potassium and vitamin…

The Extraordinary Ordinary

She first afflicted my life back in the 1980s, back when STAR San Diego held sway at State, Mad Magazine was gleefully rotten to the world, and the San Diego Comicon was just another convention instead of the bloated lump it is today. Her name is Emily Brontesaurus, and she…
