Man Bites Dog

While studying journalism at USC, I learned that every world event or happening isn’t news. My professor at the time taught my fellow Trojans and me t...
It was while watching an episode of “Seinfeld” that I first heard the phrase, “man hands.” The episode, like all Seinfeld episodes, was hilarious. Jerry was dating a woman who had massive hands, and the oversized hands really stood out, because every...
If I had a dollar for every rejection letter I‘ve received since I started my venture to become a published author more than a decade ago, I’d be able to quit my day job. I’ve actually become inure to rejection. But that wasn’t the case when I initia...
  I remember the first time I came across the show “At the Movies.”   Bored, I was channel surfing, hoping to find something entertaining to watch. It was the early 80’s and there weren’t a thousand stations to choose from. The show feature...
  For the past twelve years, I’ve commuted from Covina to Century City and back. When I add it all up, I’ve driven 218,880 miles and have sat in traffic for 420 days—that’s more than a year. I’m LMBO right now. It’s amazing to me that I’ve cover...

  Yesterday I decided to do my grocery shopping in the morning so I’d have the remainder of the day to fulfill other commitments. I threw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt and headed over to Whole Foods Market in Pasadena. It’s about a twenty min...
  That could have easily been the headline in the Oakland Post in 1963, but as far as I know there were no stories written about the little girl who sat on her bed looking at a picture book being scalded with a bucket of boiling water. Nor were ...
Last week I took a trip to the ATL. It’s been close to fifteen years since I stepped foot in the city that’s home to one of my many guilty pleasures. You guessed correctly—Atlanta Housewives!  I was previously on vacation, but this time I was th...
A month ago my sister told me she had wrestled all night because God had given her a message to pass along to me.  As I stood in the Honda dealership waiting for my car to be serviced, I wondered what God had told my sister that he chose not to ...
