Deleted Scenes: The Couch

Every family has its symbols, its emblems. Whether they’re emblazoned on a crest on Game Of Thrones—the lions, stags, and so on—or whether there’s just an image that comes to your mind when you close your eyes, it’s there. It’s obvious. You already know it.

When I was a …

Deleted Scenes: The War On Terror – Does The Fun Ever Stop?

What I really wonder is whether or not it would be possible for there to ever be an American president who wasn’t a war criminal. If someone could ever hope to do that job and not at some point violate international law. Good president, bad president, whatever. Just one who …

My wife and I recently moved so she could start a new job. It’s the first time since I’ve been conscious enough to know where I am that I haven’t. That is to say, the first time I’ve ever lived somewhere that wasn’t my home, North Jersey, Morris Country—or hell, …
