Truth And Fiction
I have a love of writing. Sometimes I write to share information, at least in part
because I enjoy digging for obscure information from time to time and enjoy sharing
what I discover; other times I write as a way to exercise my sense of humor, which
gets more than a little lunatic at times.
As a result I've got a variety of things I'd like to put into this web-site which
don't really categorize easily. Which do you prefer, truth or fiction? I'll leave it
to you to decide.
For some odd reason, this section is filled with historical essays about the late
1800s and early 1900s. Don't ask me why. Inexplicably, it just worked out that way on its
- Money, always a popular subject, gets examined every day for its
buying power, trustworthiness, and influence. But how often is it viewed as
art? Seeing the currency of 1896 for the first time
tends to surprise most Americans, though it's almost always a very pleasant
- The name of Nikola Tesla is
surprisingly little-known, even though it was his genius which brought us
wireless communication and AC current. Have a look. You'll never think of
Thomas Edison in quite the same way again.
- Is it true that the more things change, the more things stay the same?
Here is an assortment of articles from the New York Times,
published near the end of the last century. You decide.
For some odd reason, this section is filled with screenplays that would
utterly defy any serious attempt at production. Don't ask me why. But if you're
a producer, and would like to see something a little more marketable, you should
let me know.
- It started simply enough; I just wanted to set up a word processor to
handle some script formats, and to test it I started typing a couple of quick
scenes. The result, still unfinished as of now, is the prized script for
Star Trek 6¼: The Rantings Of Klingons. Film
rights are still available!
- Someone I know once challenged me to take a four-sentence story scrawled
inside a greeting-card and turn it into a full film script. I did it. In two
days. For the first time on the Web, detective Nick Archer appears in the epic
mystery The Narvik Concession!
- Lastly, or at least lastly until I get around to updating this site again,
I present the heroism of Mr. Potato Head: Defender Of The
Geologic Ecosystem - a teleplay which reduces the complete history of the
evolution of life down to four rather jumpy acts and an epilogue.
Ah, yes, I can just hear those producers lining up at my door already.
