Timber… #flashfiction #amwriting

It had been unseasonably wet in the state where it “never rains.” We had run out of chips so I did a “quick run” to the store.  I felt a rumble, threw the car into park and jumped out.  Instinctively I knew that I had to get out from under trees and power lines. “Earthquake” I […]

Just a little harmless research #flashfiction

“What has happened?” I asked my staff of bio-engineering scientists. “Well sir…” “Something spilled…” “Got out of its jar…” “It seems perfectly harmless…” What I could ascertain from the words that they dared not say was that the research we were doing to propagate larger and healthier plants had worked. So well, in fact, that […]

No Kidding #newcago #noir #flashfiction

As I was hanging on the endless ladder, I heard a sound “Sam you have had some interesting things cross your path but a goat?” Somehow it gave me the incentive to climb faster. There it was like a shoebox diorama of a distant past: a woman reading a book, a kid trotting about an […]

All Rung Up #flashfiction #noir #newcago

  I was through the guarded door. I realized it was more like a portal to… The bleeding woman was gone. Curious, the place seemed somewhat familiar. I was precariously perched on a ladder with no top and no bottom – just endless rungs. I could taste the sepia colored air – thick and dank […]

Blood in its wake #flashfiction #newcago #noir

I stood in a daze my mouth agape out of nowhere came a colorful bus travelling much too fast Its wheels barely touching the pavement.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
